Date palm leaves (DPL) is one of the most abundant agricultural byproducts in south of Iran were fed to 9 Saanen dairy goat in a 3 × 3 Latin square design. All goats were given a TMR composed of 40% forage and 60% concentrate (corn grain 26%, cotton seed meal 15%, sugar beet pulp 15.5, wheat bran 2%, limestone 0.5%, premix 0.5%, salt 0.5%).The dietary treatment were 1) alfalfa hay (20%), wheat straw (20%) 2) alfalfa hay (20%), DPL (20%) and 3) alfalfa hay (20%), treated (4% urea) and ensiled DPL (20% DM basis). The experiment lasted for 63 d (3 periods of 21 d which 15 d for diet adaptation and last 7 d for data collection). Data were analyzed using General Linear Models procedure of SAS 9.1 for ANOVA to evaluate difference among experimental groups, mean compared with Duncan test. Average dry matter intake by the goats in different treatment were 2055, 2055, and 1794 g/d, respectively. The difference between the means was significant (P < 0.05). Average milk production by the goats in different treatments were 1375, 1389 and 1381 g/d, respectively. The difference among there means as well as other milk constituents (fat, protein, and lactose) was not significant. Although no differences were detected between these figures, the obtained data on BUN (11, 11, 15.5 mg/dL) differed significantly. Total solid of the milk produced by goats in different treatments were 10.34, 10.63, and 10.8%, respectively. Total cell counts of the milk samples were 241, 314, and 537cell per mL, respectively. The difference among there means also was not significant. It was concluded that DPL can be fed to such animals without any adverse effects.
