A nitrogen-balance study was carried out to investigate the utilization of various levels of urea (0 – 4%) absorbed by alkali-ionophore-treated whole maize when fed to Angora goats receiving a protein-deficient roughage diet. Nitrogen retention was increased significantly (P<0,05) only in the experimental groups receiving 3% and 4% urea in the grain component of the diet.
