Three (3) rumen-cannulated goats housed in
individual elevated metabolism stalls with customized
urine collection tools with five treatments on a
cross-over trial was conducted over time following the
Complete Randomize Design (CRD). Animals were
randomly selected on different dietary treatment at
different cycle. For each cycle, animals were provided
with concentrate on the morning and ad libitum feeding
of Napier grass thereafter. Clean drinking water were
made available all the times in the respective animal
watering troughs. The goats were supplemented with
two types of dietary fats (VCO and lard) at 3 and 5%.
