  The effects of different inclusion level of whole corn plant silage to Napier grass were observed in determining rumen fermentation and microbial population in goats. Fifteen male Boer cross goats around six months old of approximately 18.54±1.83 kg of b.wt., were used as experimental animals. The goats were assigned into five groups with three goats per treatment group. The five treatment groups consisted of different proportions of Napier Grass (G) and whole corn plant silage (CS)-G/CS, (T1) 100/0, (T2) 75/25, (T3) 50/50, (T4) 25/75 and (T5) 0/100, respectively. The mean concentrations of rumen NH3-N (mg dL–1) were not significant differences among the treatments, although T4 and T5 were slightly increased compared to other treatments. The total VFA production in the rumen fluid of the goat was not significantly different among the treatments, however; highest molar proportion of propionic acid and lowest proportion of acetic acid was observed in goat fed with T5 diets. Although the total bacteria population of rumen content was not significantly different among the dietary treatments, the population of R. albus, R. flavefaciens and F. succinogen showed significantly (p<0.05) among the treatments. The lowest population of methanogen and protozoa were detected in the rumen of goats fed T5 diet compared with other treatments. Thus, the animals fed with T5 diet showed the highest proportion of propionic acid and the lowest number of methanogen and protozoa population in the rumen.

  This experiment was done to evaluate the potential use of steam treated bagasse pith (SPB) in feeding of Lori Ewes. Forty eight ewes with similar condition from many flocks of autumn of Lori sheep were included in this experiment. The ewes divide into 4 groups of 12 sheep. The ewes allocated into 4 different levels of SPB (0, 5, 10 and 15%) for pre and post lambing in a completely randomized design. The diets were formulated according to NRC (1994) and had similar quality for protein, energy and high concentration of other nutrient. Concentrates were included amounts of 0, 10, 20 and 30 percent of SPB witch replaced with wheat bran and barely. Ewes live weight were measured before and at lambing and 2 weeks interval after that until weaning lamb. Milk sampling for determination of fat, Protein, carbohydrate and Solid Not Fat (SNF). Blood collected via jugular vein to indicate baseline (blood urea nitrogen, triglyceride, cholesterol and glucose). Statistical analysis with SAS program (1994) was indicated that, there were not significant differences between diets for milk composition percentage (fat, Protein, carbohydrate and solid not fat) (p<0.05). The effect of different levels of SPB on body change weight ewes and Average Daily Gain (ADG) lambs not significantly (p<0.05) different. Also there were not significant differences between diets for plasma cholesterol, BUN, triglyceride and glucose (p<0.05). In conclusion result of that could be SPB substituted instead of 30% concentrates (15% of whole diet) with no negative effects on physiological and productivity in pre and post lambing.
