Author(s):

Abstract:
In the Konkan region, small farmers have cattle, goats. They fed grass in monsoon season. But in winter and summer due to unavailability of green grass, jackfruit and local trees leaves of shivan, ashta, ghoti, hasani, kumbal are fed to goats. Also in Konkan, farmers produce finger millet crop.
The study revealed that the dry matter content in silage decreases in 45 days period to the tune of 1.75 percent. Also, the moisture content of silage increases by 1.10 percent and compacted bulk density was increased to the tune of 1.5 percent. It was observed that the colour of silage changes green to yellowish brown.
