This study was conducted to determine the haematology parameters of savannah brown goats fed Maxigrain® enzyme treated rice husk supplemented with shea butter leaves. A total number of 36 He- Savannah Brown Goats aged between 2-3 months with an average body weight of 5.5 kg were assigned to four dietary treatments in a completely randomized design. Treatments consisted of varied inclusion (0, 25, 50 and 75%) of Maxigrain® enzyme treated rice husk for eight (8) weeks experimental period. The different level of Maxigrain® enzyme treated rice husk had significant differences (P<0.05) on White Blood Cell (WBC), Absolute Lymphocyte (LY#), Lymphocyte % (LY), Absolute Granulocyte (GRAN #) and Haemoglobin (HB). While Mid cell (MID), Granulocyte (GRAN), Absolute Mid cell (MID#), Red Blood Cell (RBC), Haemotocrit (HCT) reveal no significant (P>0.05) difference among the treatment mean. Haemoglobin (HB), Red Blood Cell (RBC), Haemotocrit (HCT) and Granulocyte (GRAN) fell within range value of the goatâs blood showing that Maxigrain enzymes treated rice husk has no detrimental effect on the haematology.
