The present work was carried out to represent a review of the chemical composition and nutritive value of browse plants in the
Sudan especially in arid and semiarid areas. The a proximate analysis for this samples showed that browse plants studied in
most cases constitute an excellent forage content, which had higher nutritive value, particularly protein 8.75-21.0%. The browse
plants were found to have high content of macro elements and low content of trace elements. The samples in this studied were
found to have low content of anti-nutritional factors in term of tannin and high content of lignin. Three fistulated goats were
used; the nylon bags containing the browse plants sample Acacia albida, Acacia nubica, Acacia seiberianae, Blanetes aegyptiaca
and Ziziphus spina-chresti were administered directly throw the fistula to the rumen of goats. The digestion of the dry matter of
the browse plants in the rumen of goat was found to be high in one sample and other samples have middle digestion rate and the
rest were low. It is possible to conclude that browse plants complement grasses especially in the dry season, as dry season grasses
extremely deficient in protein and some minerals which cannot alone meet livestock maintenance requirement.
