Melilotus suaveolens Ledeb.is an important economic Legume in China cultivated third in area after alfalfa and Astragalus adsurgens.It has a higher saline-alkaline tolerance and resistant physiology but less feeding value.The feeding value is comprehensively evaluated by analyzing Melilotus suaveolens' nutrient composition,feed intake and rumen degradation rate.The relative feed value of Melilotus suaveolens is 108.10 giving it excellent quality forage grass.But the palatability of Melilotus suaveolens is poor,which only meets 77.77% of maintenance requiremens.The degradation rate in Cashmere goats' rumen is 43.27%,so it doesn't fit as a single ration to feed livestocks,and it's better to combine with other forage to feeding.
