ABSTRACT:
Sixteen dairy goats were assigned to a 4×4 Latin square design. Full-fat extruded soyabeans (EXSB) were fed at rates of 0, 150, 300, and 400 g/day, and grass hay was fed for ad libitum intake. Dietary EXSB had no effect on milk yield and milk fat content (P>0.05). Feeding increasing levels of EXSB linearly increased the concentrations of casein and whey protein in milk, and the concentration of conjugated linoleic acids in milk fat (P<0.05). Feeding EXSB has the potential to improve the quality of milk for processing as well as the nutritive value of milk fat.
