  This research was conducted in order to investigate the effects of mineral feed blocks along with the use of medicated blocks on growth, control of gastro-intestinal nematode infection and subsequently commercial productivity of Boer goats. In Malaysia, the gastro-intestinal nematode is a common problem in grazing animals, particularly in sheep and goats. This parasitic infection can damage the intestinal epithelium and cause leakage into the gastrointestinal tract of ruminants. These parasites can also cause a high mortality rate and production loss. Molasses, urea and other components are used for producing molasses/urea feeds (blocks, pastes or licks). These preparations are a suitable way of preparing degradable proteins and fermentable energy to ruminant animals as they help to increase the protein supply to the ruminant animals. Furthermore, medicated feed-supplement blocks have been used in an effort to deliver anthelmintic medication. There has been a vast amount of research by scientists to control gastrointestinal nematode infections and to improve the nutrition in goats; however, to date, the data has been inconclusive. This research was carried out to examine a new strategy that can improve performance and productivity of raising Boer goats in Malaysia. The results revealed that using the block has been quite successful and commercially recommendable in this area.
