Abstract
There is generaUy a darth of infonnationon the nutrient, particularly protein, requirement of the African breeds of livestock. The few available reports in literature (Elliot and Topps, 1963b, Karue, 1971) seem to suggest a lower protein requirement for African cattle than temperate breeds. The same situation is true of the small ruminants (Mba, Egbuiweand Oyenuga, 1974, Akinsoyinu, Mba and Olubajo, 1976).
