The present experiment was carried out to assess the effect of feeding leaves, forage on nutrient utilization & the effect of supplementary inorganic mineral mixture on the growth performance of goats with fifteen healthy goat kids of 4-6 month of age and divided into three groups. Experimental feeding was done for 90 days during which a metabolic trial was conducted. At the end of 45 days feeding of tree leaves Albezia lebbek, Ficus glomerata and Sorghums sudananse. The DM digestibility was 55.15±0.949, 54.188±0.980, 59.34±0.735; Crude Protein was 69.47±1.10, 68.67±0.42, 69.63±0.84 and Crude Fiber was 35.19±0.83, 32.44±1.31, 55.91±1.84 respectively for group I, II and III. The feed conversion efficiencies were, 3.2, 2.6 and 4.6 kg per kg weight gain in for group I, II and III. Mean daily gain in body weight of animals in group I, II and III was 21.78 ±0.44, 21.78 ±0.44 and 25.78 ±0.54 gram/day respectively showing significant difference among the three groups.
