dc.description.abstractThis paper determines the productivity of West African Dwarf goats in the subhumid zone of Nigeria and compares the relative merits of alternative wet season feed regimes namely; tethering goats on natural pasture, tethering goats on leguminous pasture and free grazing goats on leguminous pasture. The results presented represent the animal studies component for the one year (1989/1990) and was conducted in the Ganawuri area of plateau state. Goats were monitored and recorded for weight, births, sales and deaths etc every 2 weeks. Dry matter yield and botanical composition of pasture were determined.
