Nutritive value of mulberry (Morus alba) leaves in goats and sheep



Nutritive value of mulberry (Morus alba) leaves in goats and sheep



Indian Journal of Animal Nutrition 8(4): 295-296



Six adult male goats and 6 Deccani rams were fed exclusively on dried mulberry leaves for 28 days. DM intake for goats and sheep was 2.74 and 3.55 kg/100 kg body weight, respectively, which was 78 and 146% of their requirements. Digestibility of crude protein and crude fibre, and nitrogen and phosphorus balance were significantly higher in sheep than in goats. All the animals were in positive N, calcium and P balance.
