Abstract: This study was conducted to see the effect of Carica papaya, Artocarpus heterophyllus, Terminalia bellirica leaf mixture (1:1:1) in concentrate mixture at 5% and 10% level. Eighteen Assam hill goats were divided into three groups-T1 served as Control. In treatment T2 and T3, the concentrate mixture was replaced with 5 and 10% level of leaf mixture respectively. Daily weight gain of kids did not differ significantly between groups but significant difference was found in final body weight between group T2 and T3. Feed conversion efficiency was not significantly influenced by the feed supplement in the diet. It was concluded that the leaf mixture of Carica papaya, Artocarpus heterophyllus, Terminalia bellirica could be used upto 10% level as supplement in the diet of goats.
