Voluntary intake by crossbred Anglo-Nubian goats of water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) fed in two states plus guinea grass (Panicum maximum) in confinement


Voluntary intake by crossbred Anglo-Nubian goats of water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) fed in two states plus guinea grass (Panicum maximum) in confinement



Scientia Agriculturae Bohemica 31(4): 261-271



Chemical composition of water hyacinth, guinea grass and diets based on fresh or dry water hyacinth at 50% of total daily forage allowance were compared. Additionally, twelve crossbred Anglo-Nubian goats about 14-16 months old and pre-experimental body weight of 22.1+or-0.9 kg were used in a completely randomized design experiment to investigate voluntary feed intake, growth rate, feed efficiency and apparent nutrient digestibility coefficients of water hyacinth diets.
