Abstract

This experiment aimed to investigate the effects of fermented water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) on palatability, performance and spermatozoa quality on male sheep. Fermented water hyacinth was mixed with the basal ration at various levels according to the following dietary treatments: (R1: 0% fermented water hyacinth (fwh) + 100% basal ration (br), R2: 10% fwh + 90% br, R3: 20% fwh + 80% br, R4: 30% fwh + 70% br). These dietary treatments were given to four groups of sheep, each group consisted of five male sheeps served as the replicates. The rations were given twice a day at 6.7% of their body weight. Palatability was determined based on selection index using cafeteria-method in one day, while body weight gain and spermatozoa quality were evaluated after three months of feeding. Data were analyzed by ANAVA and Duncan’s. The results showed that R3 had the highest palatability (P<0.05). Body weight gain were similar among the treatments. Increasing levels of fermented water hyacinth improved spermatozoa quality.Male sheep given R4 produced the best spermatozoa quality (P<0.05). In conclusion, inclusion of fermented water hyacinth in the ration improves reproductive performance in male sheep, but has limited effects on performance.
