The summer fodders are Jantar (Coriandrum sativum), cowpeas (Vigna sinesis), maize (Zea mays), guar (Cyamopsis tetragonoloba), sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) and millet (Pennisetum americanum).
Understanding on the nutritional value of these fodders utilize for feeding of goats and sheep in Pakistan lacking, the present study was conducted to assess the voluntary intake and digestibility of the summer fodders guar, cowpea and jantar.
Replicates within each group were fed on jantar, cowpea and guar, respectively.
The feeding behavior in goats and sheep fed on different summer fodders guar (Cyamopsis tetragonolba), cowpea (Vigna sinesis) and Jantar (Coriandrum sativum) are given in Table II.
Both species attained marginal weight gain on all offered fodder (Guar, cowpea and Jantar).
