Abstract
The determination of the feeding value of dried coffee hulls followed the standard pattern of calculating their digestible protein equivalent and starch equivalent from the results of digestibility trials conducted with two Masai-type wethers. The experimental technique employed was identical to that used for the sunflower trial previously reported (Rogerson, 1955) and the trial was commenced after a preliminary feeding period of fourteen days. The coffee hulls were fed together with an oat hay of determined digestibility, the rations fed to the two sheep being 300 g. oat hay + 200 g. coffee hulls daily. The coffee hulls appeared to be quite palatable, as evidence of which no feed residues were obtained from either sheep.
