First treatment (F1) 70% Forage + 15% Corncob concentrate + 15% Sago pulp Concentrate, 2nd treatment (F2) 70% Forage, + 20% Corncob concentrate + 10% fermented sago pulp concentrate, third treatment (F3) 70% forage + 10% Corncob concentrate + 20% Sago pulp concentrate. All forage material is chopped before being given to Experimental livestock. The collected data were analyzed using variety analysis, then influential observations were further tested using honest real difference tests. The results showed that the treatment did not significantly affect feed consumption, significantly affected the increase in body weight, body temperature, digestibility of dry matter and organic matter.

General hygiene during processing, handling and quality measures to minimize bacterial contamination of products sold as test for coliform reflected that dog meat (1.70 x 103 CFU/g) had higher total coliform count (TCC) followed by pork (1.04 x 103 CFU/g) and mutton (0.44 x 103 CFU/g) had the lowest TCC. The organisms isolated from different meat types are: Mutton (Bacillus pumillus, Staphylococcus epidermidis and Klebsiella aerogens); Pork (Staphylococcus epidermidis, Bacillus spp and Bacillus megaterium); Dog (Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella aerogens and Bacillus spp).The results obtained from the study showed the presence of microorganisms in various levels in meat types collected would might be cable of causing food poisoning. Microbial loads of 2.65 – 3.14 x 103 CFU/g are safe for human consumption. High total coliform count in dog meat visualizes mal evisceration processes and insufficient hand washing.
