Abstract: 

BACKGROUND: Pomegranate seed pulp (PSP) as a valuable and low cost feed may be used as a cereal grain replacement in ruminant diet.
OBJECTIVES: This experiment was carried out to evaluate the effect of replacing some of cereal grains of diet with ensiled PSP (with or without added urea) on dry matter intake and production performance of south Khorasan crossbred goats.
METHODS: A total of 21 goats with average daily milk yield of 645.8
±0.15 kg and average body weight of 26±2.5 kg were randomly assigned to one of three experimental diets based on collected records at pre-experiment period. Experimental diets were included: 1- control (without PSP), 2- containing 10% of ensiled PSP without urea, and 3- containing 10% of ensiled PSP with urea (DM basis), were fed individually as totally mixed ration to goats.
RESULTS: Replacing some of cereal grains of diet with ensiled PSP without urea increased (P< 0.01) feed intake and decreased (P< 0.05) milk production, compared to control diet, but 4% fat corrected milk (FCM) production was not affected. However, replacing some of cereal grains of diet with ensiled PSP with urea had no effect on milk and 4% FCM production compared to control. The results of this study showed that replacing some part of diet’s grains by ensiled PSP without urea reduced the milk yield and feed conversion of goats but this replacing using ensiled PSP with urea did not affect the goat's performance.
CONCLUSIONS: Ensiled PSP with urea can be used as a cost effective by-product for replacing of some part of diet’s grain and thereby reducing the production costs.
