K. Celik, I.E. Ersoy and F. Savran    

Abstract: This study was conducted to determine the wheat straws treated with urea (0.05 kg/kg straw) and low protein concentrate in Saanen male kids performance. Thirty-two Saanen male kids (16 weeks of age; 16.125 ± 0.5 kg body weight) were used in a completely randomized design and divided into two uniform treatments. 50 kg urea dissolved in 1000 kg water spreaded over 1000 kg wheat straw and stored for 30 days. Each treatment consisted 16 kids during the 16-weeks to compare performance with diets based on wheat straw (WS) supplemented with 12% crude protein (CP) levels of crushed barley-wheat concentrate (50:50) as traditional in Turkey. Treatment I (control) were fed on 500 g. untreated straw (US) and 500 g. crushed barley-wheat concentrate (50:50). Treatment II were fed on urea treated straw (UTS) and crushed barley-wheat concentrate (50:50). At the end of the trial, the findings were not statistically important (p<0.05). In conclusion, supplementation of treated wheat straw (TWS) with a barley-wheat based concentrate support had not positive effect on Saanen kids` performance for 4 months.
