Abstract: The leaves of sugarcane, rice and maize were utilized the maximum by M. separate with coefficient values of 71.06, 70.57 and 69.29 percent, respectively, while it was minimum in leaves of water grass (27.79%). Hair density did not show significant correlation with consumption values but it was significantly negative with coefficient of utilization. Thickness and moisture contents played a significant role with negative and positive responses with consumption and coefficient utilization, respectively. The actual contribution of Morpho-physical factors on cumulative basis was 52.1 and 68.9 percent for consumption and utilization, respectively.
