Abstract: 
This study was conducted to evaluate the nutritional value of Alhagi camelarum and Halocnemum strobilaceum silage mixed with Hordeum vulgare seeds and molasses. After collecting and crushing plant samples, they were ensiled in a randomized complete block design with four treatments and three replications at different ratios of dry matter weight. After 28 days of silage, the nutritional value of these mixtures was determined by chemical and gas production methods. To determine the consumption ratio, three one-year-old sheep and goats were used. The results indicated that the treatment containing 50 % H. strobilaceum, 10% barely, 30 % A. camelarum and 10 % molasses had the most nutritional value, so that the highest values of OMD, SCFA, ME, DOM, and NEL in gas production method and CP, ASH and FAT in chemical method were recorded for this treatment. The highest consumption ratio was recorded for the mixture containing 50% H. strobilaceum, 20% barely, 20% A. camelarum, and 10% molasses. Overall, since H. strobilaceum and A. camelarum, accounting for 80% of this mixture, grows wild in nature, this silage could be recommended as a suitable mixture in saline and rocky lands after supplementary studies.
