This book tries to identify botanical milk-enhancers in dairy livestock nutrition. Survey conducted revealed that farmers were aware of the use of Guiera senegalensis for increased milk yield in humans but served as feed to livestock. Thus Guiera senegalensis a phyto-galactagogue used by Humans in the traditional Fulani Settlements was fed to lactating goats at varying inclusion levels to ascertain its role in lactation. Findings from the work revealed that it increased milk yield at 30% inclusion level in lactating does and liveweight changes of suckled kids. It is hoped that findings in this work stimulates further studies on the role and implications of botanical galactagogues in milk production of dairy livestock; as well as development of strategies for conservation of such feed resources to ensure sustainability.
