Livestock Research for Rural Development 3(1): 53-58
Intestine production from African Hair sheep fed sugarcane tops, multinutritional blocks and tree foliage
A total of 80 ewes and 4 rams of African Hair breed were fed on diets of chopped fresh sugarcane tops ad libitum with or without king grass (Pennisetum purpureum X Pennisetum americanum) forage, 10% molasses/50% urea block, poultry litter and rice polishings (9:1) and fresh Gliricidia sepium foliage 3 kg/100 kg liveweight daily. Lambs were given the same diet in a creep feeder and were weaned at 12 kg liveweight.
