A study was conducted at two agricultural development sites in Adami Tulu district of Ethiopia to investigate the chemical composition, intake and digestibility of the three major crop residues, namely, maize stover, tef straw and haricot bean haulms produced in the area. Intake and digestibility were determined using nine Borana bulls. Chemical analysis indicated that the by-products have low nitrogen content and are composed of cell wall components with little soluble cell contents. As a result their intake and digestibility were low. Therefore, training of farmers in the application of some crop residue treatment methods and in the use of supplementary feeds is highly recommended.
