Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the potential of leaves from Grewia oppositifolia (G. oppositifolia) and Ziziphus mauritiana (Z. mauritiana) as a crude protein (CP) supplements to low quality diets of goats in Pakistan. Chemical composition and CP degradability of the tree leaves were compared with cottonseed cake (CSC). The CP content of the supplements ranged from 141 to 269 g/kg dry matter (DM). Contents of total phenols and condensed tannins (CT) were higher (P
