Title : Usage of Selective Local Crops for Goat Feeds to Increase Milk and Meat Yield
by Afzan Mat Yusof, Mohd Hishammfariz Mohd Amin,
Abstract : The success of goat’s milk and meat production relied on the types of feeding materials. The use of imported crops is common leading to underutilization of local crops. Local crops or new feed was formulated to compare with the existence of imported crops or old feed used by the goat farmers. Goats’ body weight gain and daily milk yield were measured as indicators of the feed formulation efficacy and goats’ performance. Twenty adult female Saneen goats (30-35 kg) were fed with two different feed formulations for six months. The goats were fed with imported feed (Diet 1) for the first three months and continued with local crops feed (Diet 2) for the next three months. The goats fed with Diet 2 showed higher body weight gain and milk production than Diet 1. The implementation of feed formulation using local crops is recommended as it increases goats’ milk and meat production
