Abstract

Blood profil and hematological status of local sheep under the gunung walat education forest area SukabumiABSTRACT. Gunung Walat Education Forest (HPGW) is one of special forest which integrated with farm system (Agrosilvopastural). This forest is heterogeneous which dominated with agathis, damar and pinus trees. To support the farming system is needed basic data haematology and blood profil of sheep that lived in HPGW. This research was aimed to evaluate haematological values covering Red Blood Cell, haemoglobin, Packed Cell Volume, MCV, MCH, MCHC and blood nutrient profil of lambs and ewes fed with mixed grass which is grow surrounding HPGW. Evaluation were done on 5 productive ewes and 5 male lambs 5-6 month ages, before and after eating time. The result showed that RBC of the lamb was (7.57 0.40) x 106/mm3 and for ewes was (5.71 0.05) x 106/mm3. Hb of lamb was (7.21 0.27) g/100ml and for ewes was (6.62 0.54) g/100ml, PCV of lamb was (28.10 7.21) % and ewes was (26.80 3.42) %, MCV of lamb was (32.68 1,23) fl and ewes was (50.91 1.53) fl, MCH of lamb was (10.82 0.47) pg and ewes was (12.93 0.29) pg, MCHC of lamb was (27,53 4.70)% and for ewes was (25.54 1.57) %. There were no significant difference on haematological values before and after feeding time except for Packed Cell Volume (P< 0.05). The clinical result showed that lambs was suffering normocytic hypochromic anaemia and adults was suffering macrocytic hypochromic anaemia. Glucose level and total blood protein were at normal level while blood triglyseride concentration was lower than normal ewes concentration.

Abstract

This experiment was conducted to determine the role of turmeric powder in lipid metabolism andits influence on the quality of the first quail’s egg. Sixty female quails were assigned into a completelyrandomized design with four treatments (levels of turmeric powder i.e., 0; 13.5; 27; and 54mg/quail/day) and each treatment used 15 quails. The treatment was conducted for 60 days. Parametersmeasured were proximate analysis and the quality of the first layed eggs. At the end of the experiment,serum cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations, abdominal and pectoral fat weights, and feedconsumption were measured. Chemical analysis showed that turmeric powder contained 7.97%curcumin. Supplementation of turmeric powder lowered serum cholesterol and triglycerideconcentrations, egg fat and protein contents, haugh unit and yolk index, but did not affect feed intake,abdominal and pectoral fat weights, egg weight, eggshell weight, eggshell thickness, and egg shellindex. However, quails supplemented with turmeric powder showed a variation in egg laying delayranging from 1 to 16 days. Quails supplemented with 54 mg/d turmeric powder had the highest follicleshierarchy. It was concluded that supplementation of turmeric powder with the level of 54 mg/quail/daydecreased lipid content of the egg and improved the other egg quality parameters.

Abstract

Attacus atlas is known as wild silk moth that produce cocoon, the cocoon produce silk and have a great economics potential. This research was aimed to collect data and information about the cocoon that taken from the tea garden, Purwakarta. Variables measured in this study were cocoon characteristics and morfometrics such as cocoon weight (whole cocoon husk, cocoon husk without floss and floss weight), percentage of cocoon husk without floss weight from whole cocoon husk, percentage of floss weight from whole cocoon husk, cocoon lenght, circumference of cocoon, diameter of cocoon and the cocoon colour. Cocoon wight and the cocoon morfometrics were variable, indicated by the results obtained, such as whole cocoon husk (0.2-1.86 g), cocoon husk without floss (0.14-1.65 g), percentage of cocoon husk without floss weight from whole cocoon husk (42.59-91.09%), floss weight (0.04-0.38 g), percentage of floss weight from whole cocoon husk (8.91-57.41%), cocoon length (3.37-6.81 cm), diameter (anterior, medial and posterior) of cocoon (1.6-2.98 cm; 1.94-3.4 cm; 1.5-2.91 cm), circumference (anterior, medial, and posterior) of cocoon (2.94-8.82 cm; 4.91-10.02 cm; 4.92-8.33 cm) and cocoon colour was classed into three class; light (32 cocoon or 12.8%); medium (170 cocoon or 68%); and dark (48 cocoon or 19.2%). The values of morfometrics of cocoon varies because the observed cocoon is not clearly known whether it is male or female moth.
