The Star of Africa has extended natural plant medicine to animal husbandry and boost in the breeding potentials of animals have been observed. The trials done using rabbits increased the number of kittens reproduced drastically.

 

Rabbits were bought from the Ministry of Agriculture, Ghana, and divided into two groups. One group was administered with the plant extract whilst the other group was not administered with the plant extract to serve as a control.

After this the rabbits were allowed to cross (mate). It was observed that the group of rabbits that were administered with the natural plant extracts gave birth to 15 kittens each whilst those that were not administered with the natural plant extracts gave birth to 4 kittens each. This activity was carried out on many occasions.

The health conditions of the doe (female rabbit) that gave birth to 15 kittens were the same as those that gave birth to 4 kittens showing that the natural plant extracts used do not have any effect on the health conditions of the rabbits but only increase their reproductive potentials.

The size, weight and health conditions of the 15 kittens were also the same as that of the 4 kittens showing that the natural plant extract does not have any effect on the kittens reproduced either. The meat quality of the doe that gave birth to the 15 kittens was the same as the meat quality of the doe that gave birth to the 4 kittens.

All series of scientific observations, tests and analysis confirm that the natural plant extract that were administered to the rabbits do not have any effect on the health, size, weight etc on the doe or the kitten reproduced. The natural plant extract only increased the reproductive potential of the rabbit.

From 4 to 15, that is 375% increment in number of kittens reproduced.

The plant extracts used in these trials were extracts from leaves, stems and roots of plants, seeds and fruits. Some of the plants used are vegetables example onion. With regards to the numerical boost in animal breeding, the department has extended the research to larger animals like sheep, goats, cattle as well as other animals. This would help produce enough meat to feed the nation and drastically cut down the importation of these foods into the country.

The Star of Africa said Plant medicine was what our forefathers used to cure themselves and that plant medicine is very important. He said that Joseph was able to store food during 7 years of plenty harvest and 7 years of famine, making it 14 years in all, but the food did not go bad (Genesis 41:1 to 57).

 

Similarly Jacob, the son of Isaac, used plants to cause sheep and goats to give birth to streaked, speckled and spotted young ones ( Genesis 30:25 to 41).

In the same light, he has also used plant medicine to increase the reproductive potential of rabbits and will extend it to other animals.

Professor Ahunu, Provost, College of Agriculture, University of Ghana legorn, upon seeing the rabbits at Awoshie during the annual Technology Exhibition of the Kristo Asafo at Awoshie was astonished and exclaimed “I have never seen anything like this before.”

Among the distinguished personalities who witnessed these were Nii Odai Ayiku the 4th, Chief of Nungua (Nungua Mantse); Honourable Felix Owusu Agyapong, Minister of Parlimentary affairs, Majority Leader in Parliament and the Ag Minister of Transportation at the time; Professor Stephen Adae, Rector Gimpa, Centre of Excellence; The chairman of Parliamentary select committee on trade and industry at the time, Honourable Nana Akomea; Minister for Finance and Economic planning at the time, Honourable Kwadwo Baah Wiredu; Fast track high court judge, His lordship Justice Gyaesayor; etc. Also individuals from corporate institutions and the public visited the Apostle to observe his creativity.

With this creativity, the huge importation of meat into the country could be cut down.
