-1 DM). These diets were fed along with grass ad libitum to 16 growing WAD bucks with mean body weights of 6?1.5 kg in a completely randomized design for 28 days to determine treatment effect on acceptability of feed, hematological and serological profiles and internal organs weights of experimental animals. No significant difference was observed in total intake, however, goats preferred concentrate diets to grass as revealed by DM concentrate intake ranging from 91.31 to 92.21% of total intake. The mean serum metabolite?s indices showed the value of total protein levels of animals on diets A, C and D as 6.40, 6.30 and 6. 33 g 100 mL, respectively. Dietary affect on serum cholesterol and albumin: globulin ratios were significant (p0.05) for goats on diet B, C and D, but lower in animals on diet A. Animals on diets C and D had significantly higher heart weights. It could be deducted that replacement of SBM with above 35% might be support good performance and production in good nutrition.]]>
