The byproducts of agricultural processes have great potential as a source of low cost animal feed. In this paper we assess the potential of açaí palm (Euterpe oleracea Mart.) seed as a food source for sheep. Sixteen non-castrated male sheep with average initial body weight of 22 kg were randomly assigned to one of four diet treatments, using initial body weight as a covariate. The diets consisted of coastcross hay and a variable proportion of açaí seed meal (0, 5, 10 and 15% -DM basis) added todoi:10.5897/ajar2015.10240 fatcat:jowornha6jfcbdx5rpvcarhkpe
