While the cumulative increases in withers height, body length and hip height in the TMFG were virtually the same as the CFG.
In the AMFG and TMFG, eighty percent of the withers height, hip height, body length and chest girth recorded at the conclusion of the experiment (13 mo old) were attained by the time the animals had reached 6 to 7 mo old.
Table 9 shows the blood parameters on the animals in the CFG, AMFG and TMFG. The hematocrit in the AMFG was virtually the same as the CFG while the values in the TMFG were tended to be higher than the CFG.
The coats of the animals in the AMFG and TMFG were observed to be shinier than the CFG animals.
There was no significant difference in the body weight before slaughter of the animals in all three treatments (AMFG, TMFG, CFG).
While cooking loss in the TMFG was the same as the CFG, that in the AMFG was significantly higher than the CFG (p < 0.05).
While the cumulative increases in withers height in the AMFG and TMFG were virtually the same as the CFG, cumulative body length, hip height among the animals in the AMFG and TMFG tended to be greater than the animals in the CFG.
In the AMFG and TMFG, eighty percent of the withers height, body length, and hip height recorded at the conclusion of the experiment (13 mo old) were attained by the time the animals had reached 6 mo old.
Blood composition analysis and physical observation: Table 10 shows the blood parameters on the animals in the CFG, AMFG and TMFG. The plasma total protein concentration in the AMFG was virtually the same as the animals in the CFG while the values in the TMFG animals were comparatively lower than the CFG (p<0.01).
The feed given to the animals in all three groups (CFG control, AMFG treatment, TMFG treatment) was formulated to ensure that irrespective of the mixed feed being used, the TDN and DCP content were the same, satisfied the NRC standards (2006), and produced a daily body weight gain of 100 g/d.
The difference between the control and the treatments was that the main protein source in the control feed used in the CFG control was soy bean meal while the main protein source in the AMFG and TMFG treatments was respectively derived from the Awamori-pressed lees and the Tofu lees (Table 3).
Body weight increases over the 10 month period of the experiment in the AMFG and TMFG treatments were the same as increases recorded in the CFG control.
