Title : Napier Silage Formulation as Fodder Conservation for Goats During Monsoon Season
by Afzan Mat Yusof, Mohd Hishammfariz Mohd Amin,
Abstract : Silage is a type of feedstock that had undergone several steps of forage fermentations that served as an alternative feedstock for ruminants. Hence, the project aimed to formulate Napier grass silage formulation that suitable to maintain the weight and health of goats during the monsoon season. Napier silage was formulated without adding any imported crops. Goats’ body weight gain was measured as indicators of the feed formulation efficiency and goats’ performance. A total of twenty adult goats with bodyweight approximately 30-40 kg were fed with Napier silage formulation for 3 months (October to December). Bodyweight and daily milk production were measured on Day 7, 14, 21 and 28 of every month. The goats fed with Napier silage were able to maintain healthy weight and health during the monsoon season. The findings found that the Napier silage formulation is recommended as fodder conservation for goats during monsoon season
