Voluntary intake and digestibility of fresh, wilted and dry Leucaena (Leucaena leucocephala) at four levels to a basal diet of guinea grass (Panicum maximum)



Voluntary intake and digestibility of fresh, wilted and dry Leucaena (Leucaena leucocephala) at four levels to a basal diet of guinea grass (Panicum maximum)



Asian Australasian Journal of Animal Sciences 15(8): 1139-1146



60 crossbred Anglo-Nubian goats (growing females), 18-24-months-old, with a mean pre-experimental liveweight of 20.9+or-0.44 kg were used to investigate voluntary dry matter intake (DMI) and digestibility of supplements of L. leucocephala (LL) leaves to a basal diet of guinea grass. The experiment was a 3 forms of presentation: fresh, wilted and dry x 4 levels of supplementation: 10, 20, 30 and 40% of total forage allowance with LL leaves.
