study was undertaken to evaluate the effect of feeding cassava leaf silage (CLS)
and cassava peels (CP) on performance characteristics and some haematological parameters of
West African Dwarf (WAD) sheep. Nine sheep were randomly allotted into three treatments, with
three sheep per treatment. The control diet (T1) consisted of grass, while sheep in (T2) and (T3)
were fed with CLS and CP at 1.5% of their body weight, respectively for a period of seven weeks.
The average daily weight gain, body length, withers height and heart girth were measured at
weekly intervals. In addition, blood samples were collected at the beginning and end of the
experiment and analyzed for PCV, WBC, Lymphocyte and Neutrophil count. Statistical analysis
showed that animals fed with CP had a significant weight gain (P<0>
significant difference in wither height, body length and heart girth, respectively. However, there
was a significant differences (P<0>
was recorded during the experiment.
