Abstract

The amino acid content and anti-nutritional content of the leaves four selected browse plants in the tropics often recommended for use as non- conventional feeding materials were evaluated, with a view to comparing their suitability as non- conventional feeding materials. Fresh leaves of Myrianthus arboreus, Gmelina arborea, Terminalia catappa and Dacroydes edulis were collected from farmlands in Asaba, Delta State, Nigeria (6014’N and 6049’E). The presence of eight amino acids and some anti-nutritional factors was determined. Data collected were subjected to a one-way analysis of variance procedure, using the IRRISTAT for windows (Version 5.0) computer software. Significantly different means were separated using Duncan’s Multiple Range Test Procedure. Significance was reported at 5% level of probability. Results indicate appreciable amount of amino acids .Significant (P<0.05) differences exist between the groups. The value of the anti-nutritional content of the leaves was low indicating that these materials can be used as leaf meals for livestock feed. Significant (P<0.05) differences exist between the groups.
