Title: Changes in intake and nutritional quality of saltcedar
Author: Knight, Colt
Abstract: Recently 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 % .
