Abstract:
The present study was conducted with objective to estimate the chemical composition of Leucena eucocepahala leaf meal and to formulate complete rations containing untreated Leucena leucocepahala leaf meal (ULLLM) and treated Leucena leucocepahala leaf meal (TLLLM) at 30 and 40 parts, to study growth performance and digestibility in kids. A growth trial was conducted for 90 days with 30 kids (9.00 kg±0.150) by allocating at random to five complete rations CR1 (control), CR2 (30% ULLLM), CR3 (30% TLLLM), CR4 (40% ULLLM) and CR5 (40% TLLLM). There was decrease of 63% mimosine content and the dry matter loss of 9.4% in treated Leucena leucocephala leaf meal. The difference among the digestibility of nutrients was non-significant. The ADG (g/d) was higher (P<0.05) in CR1 (37.7) followed by CR3 (35.92) fed group. The result of present study indicated that the treated Leucena leucocephala leaf meal can be included at 30% level in complete ration of growing kids as replacement of concentrate mixture under intensive system of rearing shown better performance in kids.
