  Background and Objectives: Most utilized grains in livestock feeding in Egypt are imported from abroad, therefore searching for alternative feed ingredients to replace of high cost feed grains is very important approach. This research aimed to investigate the effects of partial replacement of corn grains by Powdered Date Seeds (PDS) or PDS+fibrolytic enzymes on the productive performance of Rahmani rams and lactating Nubian goats. Materials and Methods: For digestibility trial, three mature Rahmani rams were randomly assigned to the experimental rations [Control (0% PDS), R1 (50% of corn of the control replaced by PDS), R2 (50% of corn of the control replaced by PDS) + 2 g Asperozym kg–1 DMI] using 3×3 Latin square design. For lactation trial, twenty seven lactating Nubian goats randomly assigned into three groups of nine animals each to the experimental rations using complete random design. The entire experimental periods for digestibility and lactation trials were 63 days. Rams and goats were fed dry matter according to 4% of their body weight and water was offered freely. Data were statistically analyzed by SAS (Version 8) software. Results: Rams fed R1 recorded the lowest values of ruminal fermentation characteristics (except pH) and nutrients digestibility coefficients. No significant differences were found between (R2) and control rams in all tested ruminal fermentation characteristics (except pH) and all nutrients digestibility coefficients (except CF digestibility). There were no significant differences among all groups in plasma total protein, globulin, urea, ALT, AST and cholesterol concentrations. Milk, 4% FCM and all milk constituents yields (except SNF yield) were higher (p<0.05) for control and R2 goats than R1 goats. Conclusion: The replacement of 50% of corn grains by enzymatically treated powdered date seeds had no negative effect on rumen fermentation and nutrients digestibility of Rahmani rams, as well as Nubian goat’s milk production and its component’s yields.

  Background and Objectives: The use of non-traditional oilseeds such as Moringa oleifera Lam seeds has being an attractive as feed resource for livestock production. The objective of this study was to evaluate moringa seed cake (MSC) as an alternative source of protein in lactating ewe’s ration. Materials and Methods: The control diet consists of concentrate mix and Egyptian clover hay (50:50). Cotton seed meal was substituted by MSC at two levels (2.5 and 5%). Three trials were conducted. An in vitro true dry matter (IVTDM) and fiber fractions digestibility were determined using the batch culture system. In vitro gas production (GP) technique was used to determine the amount of gas produced over a 3, 6, 12 and 24 h incubation. For the lactation trial, twenty-one of lactating Ossimi ewes were assigned into three groups using complete random design to study the effect of MSC on animal performance. Results: Total GP after 24 h and potential extent of GP were significantly (p<0.05) increased, while the rate of release was significantly (p<0.05) decreased for ewes fed MSC levels. The highest digestibility values were observed for the group fed MSC at a level of 2.5%. Daily fat-corrected milk and composition were significantly (p<0.05) improved in ewes fed MSC at level 2.5%. However, increasing levels to 5% significantly (p<0.05) decrease milk production and composition. Conclusion: Moringa seed cake could be included in lactating ewes’ diets as a source of protein at a low level (2.5%) to improve milk production performance without any adverse effect.
