Exmines the nutritive value of fruits from Acacia tortilis, A. albida, A. nilotica and A. sieberiana. Compares the fruits of these four species with the meal produced by industrial extraction of oil from noug (Guizotia abyssinica). Also compares these feeds as sources of protein when offered in combination with maize stover (Zea mays). Includes data on the composition of feedstuffs and summarises results of growth and balance trials and ratio of seed to pod and seeds voided undigested in the faeces.
