EFFECT OF FEEDING KOCHO WASTE (DUPO) AS A SUBSTITUTION OFENERGY PORTION OF CONCENTRATE MIXTURE ON FEED INTAKE, DIGESTIBILITY, BODY WEIGHT GAIN AND CARCASS CHARACTERISTICS OF HARARGE HIGHLAND

Abstract:

A study was conducted to evaluate the effect of feeding kocho waste,“dupo” (scraped pseudostem fermented in a pit as upper cover of whole kocho) as a substitution of energy portion of concentrate mixture (ECM, that is 2:1 ratio of maize and wheat bran) on feed intake, digestibility, live weight gain, carcass characteristics, meat quality and economic benefit of Harerge Highland sheep fed a basal diet of natural grass hay. Twenty-four yearling intact Harerge highland sheep with initial body weights (IBW) of 16.29±2.08kg (mean±SD) were assigned to four dietary treatments in a completely randomized block design. The experimental sheep were blocked into six blocks of four animals based on their initial body weight (IBW) and randomly assigned to one of the four treatments within a block. The treatments were 75% ECM + 25% NSC (T1), 50%ECM + 25% kocho waste (dupo) + 25%NSC (T2), 25% ECM +50% kocho waste (dupo) + 25% NSC (T3) and 75% kocho waste (dupo) + 25%NSC (T4). The supplement feed offered at the rate of 350 g/day per sheep. The experiment consisted 90 days feeding and 7 days’ digestibility trials followed by evaluation of carcass and meat quality parameters. The CP content of hay, kocho waste, NSC, maize and WB were 8.64, 7.08, 36.9, 8.04 and 17.02%, respectively. Total CP intake was higher (P
