dc.description.abstractRecently weaned Boer-cross (n=20) and Angora (n=6) goats were individually penned and fed increasing amounts of saltcedar. Weight, intake, and water consumption data were monitored. In addition, saltcedar samples were collected during the months of June, July, August, September and October and analyzed for chemical composition. Boer-cross and Angora goats consumed 3.7 g·kg-1 of BW and 3.8 g·kg-1 of BW, respectively, of saltcedar (P > 0.05). Water consumption differed by breed at 0.8 L·d-1 and 2.1 L·d-1 for Angora and Boercross, respectively, but did not differ by period. Both breeds lost weight during the final period of the trial. Crude Protein of saltcedar ranged from 16.0% to 19.6% (P < 0.05) , and TDN averaged 68.5%. Sodium content of saltcedar varied from 0.1% to 2.4%. Dry Matter content averaged 32.2%.
