Goat Feed Formulae
#1
Below is a feed formulae that can make goats to grow at a rate of 54g per day.
.
70% Gliricidia sepium, 30% Cassava peel (dried under the sun to remove toxin) and salt lick.
.
A 6 months old goat weighing 6.1kg was used in the experiment. When growing at this rate, the goat will gain 19.8kg in 1yr, ataining 25.9kg. When killed and deboned, we'll be left with 13.2kg meat, considering the fact that goats normally have 51% dressing percentage.

A Goat Feed Fmla that gave 62g per day Growth

This experiment was conducted in Cameroun with West African Dwarf Goats (9-12 months old and weighing 9-15kg). They were fed fresh Guatemala grass and concentrate (cassava flour, groundnut cake and 1% di-calcium phosphate). A salt lick was available free choice.

Concentrate containing 200g cassava flour plus 100g groundnut cake gave 52g/day growth rate.

200g cassava flour plus 150g groundnut cake gave 62g/day growth rate.

If you have cheap access to cassava flour and groundnut cake, this is a good formula to try out. It may even worth it to grow your own cassava. And of course, you can replace the Guatemala grass with any other grass that is available. Elephant grass is a good alternative.
