The nutritive composition of Cili residue has been analysed, and experimentsof feeding chicken, swine and Saanen milk goat with Cili residue as a feed source have been carried out in 1985 to 1987.he composition of Cili residue is as follows: Crude protein 7.07%, crude fibre 38.28%,crude fat 5.62%,non-nitrogen abstract 38.46%.Accordingly Cili residue belongs in coarse fodders, its metabolic energy on chicken is 1.139 Meal/kg; its digestive energy on swine is 1.229 Meal/kg; its digestive and metabolic energies on Saanen milk goat are respectively 1.528 Meal/kg and 1.197 Meal/kg. The experiments show that Cili residuecan be used as a source of mixed feed for numinants. And thus multipurpose use of Cili residue is of certain economic value.
