Abstract

Twelve local goats (98.41 ± 0.79 d old of 10.71 ± 0.31 kg BW) were fed on pelleted complete
feed composed of sorghum straw (60%), cotton seed cake (32%), sorghum grain (05%), arhar
chunni (03%), mineral mixture (02%) and common salt (01%) containing 7% DCP and 65% TDN
for 120 days. The DMI/100 kg body weight was 4.55 ± 0.10 kg and the ADG was 66.78 g. The
goats were in positive nitrogen, calcium and phosphorus balance. The rumen liquor profile studied
fortnightly showed significant (P 0.01) variations for pH, TVFA, N3-N, total nitrogen, TCA-ppt-
N and NPN. The blood biochemical parameters also revealed significant (P < 0.01) variations for
glucose, total protein, calcium and phosphorus. It was concluded that sorghum straw can be
successfully incorporated in pelleted complete diet of goat with average weight gain of 66 g daily
