  Reproductive management has an important role in animal production; therefore, the objective of this study was to determine the effect of different dosages of equine chronic gonadotropin (eCG) on reproductive performance of mature Raini goats during the breeding season. One hundred Raieni goats (42±2.5 kg) were randomly allocated to five groups to receive different dosages of eCG; (0 IU as control group; and other treated groups received 350, 450, 550 and 650 IU of eCG respectively). The interval to onset of estrus was detected by using five aproned bucks. Oestrus was induced by prostaglandin and occurred 24 to 48 h after the second injection. The results showed the estrus incidence rates were not significantly different between groups (p>0.05). The pregnancy rates were 90, 90, 95, 100 and 85% in treatments and control group, respectively, with the pregnancy rate in 550 and 650 IU groups being significantly higher than the other groups (p<0.05). Twinning rates were higher in treated goats (55, 58 and 65%) than in controls (36%, p<0.05). The results of the present study show that eCG treatments increase the twinning rate in Iranian Raieni goats.

  This experiment was carried out to save Tomato Pomace (TP) by ensiling with two levels of Wheat Straw (WS) to measure nutrient digestibility of this feedstuff in comparison with alfalfa hay. The experiment was a Completely Randomized Design (CRD) containing three treatments and replicates in which two WS levels (5 and 10%) were added to TP as wet basis and ensiled in 25 kg plastic bags. The third treatment was alfalfa hay. Effects of WS addition on nutrient digestibility of TP silages were investigated. The results of experiment showed when the level of WS increased, digestibility of Organic Matter (OM) and Crude Protein (CP) of TP silages decreased (p<0.05). Silage DM digestibility was not affected by WS addition to TP. According to the results of this experiment TP silage containing 10% WS can be advised for the sheep compared with alfalfa hay during the scarcity periods of roughages.

  A digestibility trial was conducted to evaluate feed consumption and digestibility coefficients of DM, OM, CP and Ca in Kermani lambs fed Alhagi silages supplemented with low quality date palm. Animals were randomly distributed into three groups of three lambs. The first group was fed silage containing 5% date-palm, the second group fed silage containing 10% date-palm and the third one received silage containing 15% date-palm. In the digestibility trial, three animals from each group were housed separately in metabolism cages in order to collect faeces. The apparent digestibility of OM was not affected as the date level in silage increased. The digestibility of DM (p = 0.065), NDF (p<0.001), ADF (p<0.05) and CP (p<0.001) decreased as the date palm level was increased from 5-15%. Dry Matter Intake (DMI) was increased from 433.9-467.4 g day-1 in lambs fed diet containing 15% date-palm silage. Results of this experiment suggested that silage containing 15% date-palm could be a good quality roughage for small ruminants.
