The performance of 20 albio rats (wistar strain) ages 3 weeks was investigated by feeding neem seedcake (NSC) after treatment with solvents. Group 1 and those of group II and III were fed experimental dietscontaining water, 75% methanol and 75% ethanol processed neem seed cake respectively as a replacement forsoya bean for a period of 28days. Replacement of soya bean by water processed neem seed depressed thegrowth at the end of 4th week while for the other solvent processing 4th week was a period of stunted growth.There was no significant (p>0.05) difference in the PCV and Hb of animals fed MNSC diet compared toanimals fed with standard protein diet. All the animals fed with processed neem seed cakes showed significant(p
