  The aim of this study was to recognize the palatability of Ground Cinnamon (GS) treated Oil Palm Decanter Meal (OPDM) on goats. Goats were placed in an individual cage attached with 3 separated adjustable feed containers. It was spent for adaptation period of 7 days to familiarize animal with the experimental feed. Then all animals were offered with three alternatives feed namely RS as a standard feed, untreated OPDM (UDM) and GS treated OPDM (GDM) over a 15 days experimental period. The chemical composition including ash, Organic Matter (OM), Crude Protein (CP), Ether Extract (EE), Neutral Detergent Fiber (NDF) and Acid Detergent Fiber (ADF) of both GDM and UDM was not significantly different (p>0.05) among experimental feed. Intakes on day 1 and average on day 5, 10 and 15 were significantly different (p<0.05) among four different experimental feeds. After removing of RS on day 5, intake of GDM significantly (p<0.05) increased and be the highest in comparison with UDM and NG. In conclusion, the chemical composition of GDM was not different from that of UDM therefore GDM could be used as animal feed. GDM could be accepted as edible feed for goat as it was higher intake of than that of UDM.
