Demonstration trials were carried out with lactating Shami goats, Black Syrian Mountain goats, growing Shami heifers and fattening Shami bull calves. In all four trials the control concentrate mixture (C) was compared with one containing 33% dried poultry manure (M). Goats on the M diet produced significantly more milk (621 vs 558 g/d) than those on the C diet. In the trial with dry mature Mountain goats, there were no difference between diets for initial and final body weight, but there was a significant decrease in weight gain (C 29 vs M 19 g/d) on the M diet. In the trials with growing heifers and fattening bull calves, there were no significant differences for weight gain between animals on the two diets. No disease problems were encountered from including dried poultry manure (DPM) in rations of growing cattle, lactating and dry goats or growing kids and the use of DPM reduced feeding costs in all the four trials.
