Legumes Wafer for Inprovement The Post-Weaning Etawah Crossbreed Goats Performance
MetadataShow full item record
This research aimed to evaluate the effect of feeding legumes wafer to improve the performanceof post weaning Etawah Crossbreed goats. The research was designed using completely randomized block with 4 treatments and 4 blocks of 16 heads post weaning Etawah Crossbreed goats with average body weight 13.10±0.91 kg. The treatments were TO (basal diet = control), TI (TO + 13.79% Indigofera zollingerianawafer), T2 (TO + 15.66% Leucaena leucocephalawafer) and T3 (TO i 14.12% Calliandracalothyrsuswafer). The post weaning Etawah Crossbreed goats performances observed dry matter and organic matterintake, average daily gain (ADG),feed efficiency (FE), income over feed cost (IOFC). The result showed that the performance of the goats especially ADG, FE, and IOFC significantly increased (P<0.05) by supplementation oflegumes wafer. The best performance of the goat was achieved by supplementation of Leucaena leucocephala \vafer (18.36% (hy matter intake, 29.20% organic matter intake, 66.18% ADG, 41.63% FE, 19.09% IOFC). As conclusion, all of legumes wafer hace a potency to improve the post-weaning Etawah Crossbreed goats performance, and the Leucaena leucocephala wafer is the best wafer.
