Authors(3) :-Habiba L. M, Mokhtar M. A, Wan Zahari M.

Goat industry in Malaysia is constrained by factors such as malnutrition due to lack of feed that contain the essential nutrients, the objective of this study were to compare the selected nutritive values, in goats. Proximate analysis was conducted on Kenaf and Moringa leaves collected from Bachok, Kelantan in malaysia. Kenaf, leaf contained 25.6% DM, 23.6% CP, 14.3% CF, 2.1% EE, 324.1Kcal/g GE, 6.1% ASH, 4.14% Ca, 2.07% P, 0.54% Mg, 0.18% Na, 2.23% K, 207 ppm Fe, 9 ppm Cu, 20 ppm Mn, 18 ppm Zn, while for Moringa, 23.6% DM, 25.2% CP, 7.2% CF, 4.2% EE, 9.2% ASH, 345.8Kcal/g GE, 0.98% Ca, 2.13% P, 0.45% Mg, 0.02% Na, 1.30% P, 250 ppm Fe, 10 ppm Cu, 290 ppm Mn, and 38 ppm Zn In conclusion, the study showed that the leaves of the two plants contained significant quantity of nutrients required for feeding goats. Comparison of the mean differences in the nutritional and mineral composition of kenaf and Moringa t-test was used Statistical analysis was performed by using the software SPSS version 17.0. The post hoc statistical significance test employed was Duncan, differences between the means were considered significant at P < 0.05.
