This study was conducted at Hawassa College of Agriculture to evaluate the chemical composition of alfalfa, Rhodes hay, Cynodon pasture and linseed cake-maize mixture. The results of the analysis of the chemical composition of the different feedstuffs showed that alfalfa had the highest crude protein (23.6%) and the lowest NDF (49%) content than the other feed samples, whereas Rhodes hay had the highest NDF (81%) and the lowest crude protein (7.5%) content. It can be concluded that alfalfa can… CONTINUE READING
