Abstract
The animal wealth of: the Sudan is estimated to be over 55 million heads of cattle, sheep, Goats and camels (approximately 22 million animal units) (Ahmed et aI., 1985). The Majority of this livestock depend on natural pastures and range which contribute about 85% of their nutrient requirements. Other feed resources in the Sudan include concentrate Feeds, irrigated forages, agro-industrial by-products. And crop-residues. Agro-industrial by-products and crops-residues 'are the second major source of feed for ruminants in the Country. Contributing about 11 per cent of the total nutrient requirements of the animal units. Concentrate feeds and for, ages contribute about 4 per cent (Kurdi, 1984). The important types of agro-industrial by-products in the Sudan include cereal straws. Groundnut hulls and Baulms, sesame residues. And sugar-cane by-products (bagasse and molasses). The sugar-cane By-products constitute about 20 per cent of the total amount of the agro-.industrial byproducts In the Sudan (Kurdi, 1984).
