  Background and Objectives: Acacia species are common in the drier areas of Ethiopian rangelands and are rich in protein and digestible nutrients. This study aimed to evaluate the effects of Acacia tortilis pod feeding on the performance of yearling male Woyto-Guji goats. Materials and Methods: Twenty yearling male Woyto-Guji goats with initial body weight of 18.40±1.23 kg (Means±SD) were assigned to one of the four experimental diets in a randomized complete block design. The experimental diets tested in this study were 20% of Acacia tortilis pod+78% of wheat bran (T1), 38% of Acacia tortilis pod+60% of wheat bran (T2), 58% of Acacia tortilis pod+40% of wheat bran (T3), 20% of noug cake+78% of wheat bran (T4) and 1% of table salts and mineral mixture added in all diets. Results: The total dry matter, crude protein and metabolizable energy intake and nutrient digestibility were higher (p<0.001) for goats supplemented with T2 diet than goats supplemented with T1, T3 and T4 diets. But, the total dry matter intake was insignificant (p>0.001) for goats supplemented with T2 and T1 diets. Likewise, goats supplemented with T2 diet attained heavier (p<0.001) daily weight gain, hot carcass weight and rib eye area muscle than goats supplemented with T1, T3 and T4 diets. Conclusion: These results suggested that feeding Acacia tortilis pod at 38% inclusion level in goats ration increased the growth performance and carcass yield of goats.

  Background and Objective: The Pennisetum perpureum grass species could play an important role in providing a significant amount of high quality dry matter yield to the livestock. Therefore, this study was initiated to evaluate dry matter yield and chemical composition of 5 Pennisetum perpureum grass varieties in irrigated lowland in South Omo. Materials and Methods: The five Pennisetum perpureum grass varieties were evaluated at Dassanech and Hamer irrigated lowland in randomized complete block design with 3 replications per variety. The data on dry matter yield, plant height, tillers per plant, leaf to stem ratio and nutritional qualities were analyzed using the general linear model procedures of SAS. Results: The higher (p>0.05) dry matter yield (51.56 t ha1) was recorded for ILRI16840 variety and whereas, the lowest dry matter yield (34.06 t ha1) was for ILRI168902 variety. Moreover, significantly higher (p<0.05) Crude protein (161.70 g kg1, DM) recorded for ILRI16815 and whereas, significantly lowest (p<0.05) crude protein (126 g kg1, DM) for ILRI168902 variety. Conclusion: On basis of results it can be calculated that the pastoral communities who living in irrigated lowland areas of South Omo Zone and other areas having comparable agro-ecology could plant ILRI16840 variety followed by ILRI16815variety for higher dry matter yield and whereas, for crude protein content pastoral communities could plant ILRI16815 variety followed by ILRI16813 variety.
