Abstract

This study examined the carcass characteristics and sensory evaluation of Savannah brown goats fed Maxigrain® enzyme treated rice bran supplemented with shea butter leaves. Thirty six (36) Savannah goats were randomly assigned to diets containing 0, 25, 50 and 75% Maxigrain® enzyme treated rice bran using a completely randomized design with 3 goats per replicate for eight (8) weeks experimental period. The dietary treatments showed no significant differences (P>0.05) on the live weight of the goats. There were significant differences (P<0.05) on the carcass characteristics of the goats fed different dietary treatments. There was no significant differences (P>0.05) on the goat’s meat quality fed with different dietary treatments as was recorded by the panelist for sensory evaluation of the goat meat.
