  Browse species were analysed to determine their forage value to goats in Kgatleng district of Botswana. The plants were analysed for Crude Protein (CP), Neutral Detergent Fibre (NDF), Acid Detergent Fibre (ADF), ash, dry matter and condensed tannins. Most of the plants have CP content around 8% in the dry season. Ash ranged from 3.25-9.58% and the tannin content of 1.03-2.98%. Goats under traditional management depend mostly on browses especially in the dry season. There is no supplementary feed provided by the majority of the farmers. This study recommends the provision of supplementary feeds in the dry season for grazing goats.
