Abstract: 

Twenty- seven multiparous southern Khorasan cross-bred goats (DIM of 71 ± 12.5, average daily milk yield of 1.09 ± 0.13 kg and average BW of 28 ± 2.5 kg), were used to study the effects of feeding pomegranate seed pulp (PSP) on dry matter intake (DMI), milk yield and milk composition, average daily gain (ADG) and some blood metabolits. Goats in pre-trial period (10 d) were fed similar ration and during this period DMI, milk yield and composition were recorded. After this period and based on pre-trial records, the goats randomly were assigned. to one of three experimental diets and were housed in individual stall barns. Experimental diets that were included 0, 6 and 12% of PSP (DM basis) that fed as totally mixed ration and ad-libitum for a 45-d period. The diets were formulated to be iso-nitrogenous and iso-caloric. Results showed that use of PSP did not affect DMI and ADG of goats. Milk production tends to (P< 0.05) decrease with increasing level of PSP in diet. Milk fat concentration of goats fed diets with 6 and 12% PSP, increased by 8 and 15%, respectively but milk fat yield, milk protein concentration and yield and milk SNF concentration and yield of goats was not affected by diets. Milk lactose concentration in goats was fed with 6 and 12% PSP, increased significantly compared with control group. Feeding PSP did not any significant effect on blood glucose, cholesterol, urea N, triglyceride and lipoproteins. It was concluded that pomegranate seed pulp as a cheep feedstuff source can be replaced with part of energy rich feedstuffs in goats.
