Rearing Sheep with Goat in Nigeria 1Choice of Land
A well-drained land with a stocking density of 15 animals per hectare. Breeds
SHEEP
• West African Dwarf (Local)
• Balami
GOAT
• West African Dwarf (Local)
• Red Sokoto (Maradi)

To start a herd, get male animals of above a year of age with wide deep chest, well-sprung ribs, and strong hindquarters. A buck can serve 20 does. A doe should have at least two pairs of teats.

Housing
• Build a house with either bamboo or mud with thatched roof. Space required is about 2 sq. m. per animal. House should be open on one side. Walls up to 1.2 m on the other three, with a gap of 0.5 m to 0.8 m between the walls and roof, to provide sufficient ventilation without drought.
• Housing could be on raised floor made of bamboo with the thatched roof covering mid-way into the pens on both sides. Space could be as above.
• Fencing: Leguminous fodder trees like Gliricidia sepium and Leucaena leucocephala should be planted around the edges of the paddock to form a solid fencing and browse plants for the animals. Slatted bamboo or barbed wires can be used to complete the fencing.

Management procedure
A quarantine period of 30 days should be observed in bringing freshly purchased animals into a flock. This gives ample time for observation and attack by any disease. Animals of about 15 months of age or 12 kg (about half weight of bag of livestock feed) should be purchased. They should be bought from the villages rather than the market. The incidence of pestes des petitis ruminants (PPR) or “Kata” a rinderpest-like viral disease is rampant whenever goats from different sources are gathered in the local markets for sale. Animals are dipped in gammatex or supona solution twice in two weekly intervals. From the first day and for a period of 4 days, the animals should be administered with triple sulphonamide, like theracazan. On the first day of arrival in the farm, they should be immunized with rinderpest hyper-immune serum followed by vaccination with tissue culture rinderpest vaccine (TCRV) on the 11th day. On the 3rd and 24th days of arrival, they should be treated with broad-spectrum anthelmintic e.g., thiabendazole. In the absence of veterinary drugs, newly purchased animals should be watched closely. If there are signs of disease, such animals should be temporarily culled. If the disease persists the animals should be disposed off.

Feeding

Feed adult animals with hay or crop residue free choice plus legume hay at 1-2 kg/animal/day. Maize, soyabean, cowpea, millet or sorghum straws obtained after harvesting can be collected, treated and given to the animals free choice. Dissolve about 0.5 of ash made from cocoa pod husk or 1kg ash from palm bunch into a bucket of water to make a lye solution. Soak as much of the straw as possible into the solution and leave it overnight. Feed it straight the next morning or dry for some few hours before feeding, to increase intake. Animals can then be allowed to graze or browse afterwards. For pregnant does, and freshly weaned animals, it may be necessary to feed some concentrate consisting of 40% wheat offals, 25% brewers’ dried grains, 25% palm kernel mean, and 10% cassava peels or cowpea husk, 1% vitamin and 1% salt or supplement with 200g DM of legume fodder per day in the last 2 months of pregnancy and up to weaning at 3 months post partum.

Alley farming
Leguminous fodder trees (as under fencing) could be planted in rows on arable land, with food crops planted between the rows. Trees often established by direct seeding may be sown about 2 weeks after food crops like maize, cassava, melon, yam etc. Spacing between trees should be about 25 cm (distance from head to the toe on a foot) with four rows of food crops or 4 strides between two rows of trees. Browsing or cutting could start 1 year after planting. Advantages include provision of high protein fodder for livestock and manure and mulch from the fodder maintain and improve soil fertility for food crops while the trees limit erosion on sloping land.

Diseases
It is better to start a livestock farm during the dry season, as many of the diseases prevalent among small ruminants are commonest during the wet season. In case of outbreak of PPR (Kata), the affected animals should be isolated. Mouth lesions should be treated with dilute solution of potassium permanganate. The animals should be dewormed to control diarrhoea and treated with a potent anti-bacterial agent for 3 days. Always consult your veterinarian.

  19. Please stand by, while we are checking your browser… Hi! My plant hardiness zone is 4b. As far as accent colors, I am open to anything (except hot pink). The radiant floor heat tubes were all installed, the gypcrete poured, and the final systems installed and heat turned on so the house is nice and cozy now which is necessary for drying out all the mud used in the drywall process. And speaking of drywall, it’s all in and they’ve been mudding and taping for the last couple of weeks. Once they finish up with the mudding and taping, they’ll doing some very faint texturing on some of the walls and a smooth finish on the rest. A few coats of forest green paint on the exterior, a new roof, a bright blue door, crisp white windows with substantial trim, and matching molding above the door each did their part to roll back the years on the aging home. But it was the fanciful iron fence, red brick pathway, and well-considered landscaping that transformed the dreary dwelling into a regal residence. https://beaucwlz086531.buyoutblog.com/10948480/shower-upgrades Corner baths are (also as the name might suggest!) designed to fit neatly into the corner of the room. While using up little space, these baths can add an appearance of luxury to your bathroom and enable more walking room around it. Too often, space within a home is wasted, whether that’s unused land, a useless utility room or a half-empty garage. There are tons of ways you can utilise this wasted space, with one of them being the addition of a new bathroom. You can either choose to incorporate a small toilet, ensuite or large family bathroom depending on the space you have to work with, and our team are always at hand to ensure your design is perfect. When taking on any remodeling project, adhering to building codes while procuring the proper permits is critical, and basement bathroom installations are no different. You must have a permit when creating any additional living space, be it a kitchen, bedroom, or bathroom. Don’t skip this part; failing to get a permit can result in fines or, even worse, an order to remove the additions. Since permits also ensure that the new addition is safe, it just makes sense to go through the process.

W klasycznej odmianie gry zawsze losowany jest tylko jeden numer, a po rozliczeniu zakładów, ponownie mamy czas na obstawianie nowych opcji i czekanie, czy te przypadkiem nie przyniosą nam szczęścia. Nie można obstawiać zakładów, gdy kulka już znajduje się na kole.  Możliwe, że to już koniec stron tego typu. W ostatnim czasie nastąpił istny zalew stron hazardowych, szczególnie takich typu ruletka. Jedna była dosłownie kopią drugiej.
