Present study was conducted to evaluate the chemical composition of Azolla pinnata used in diet of Sahiwal heifers. For this Azolla was cultivated, harvested and sundried. Sundried Azolla was evaluated for proximate analysis. The dry matter of Azolla was 90%. The CP, CF, EE, TA and NFE contents of dried Azolla meal were found to be 25.63%, 7.44%, 1.64%, 19.20% and 46.09%, respectively. The proximate analysis of Azolla reveals that it is rich in crude protein content.
