There is a long practice in the feeding of sugarcane to all classes of livestock, especially for cattle during the dry
season when availability of conventional forage resources is scarce. Nevertheless, the techniques used have been
mostly rudimentary and there has been little appreciation of the critical role of supplements as a means of improving
the efficiency of utilization of the sugarcane plant as animal feed. This research paper studies the performance of
bulls which are fed by sugarcane.
