|Abstract:||Twenty Djallonke sheep (ten ewes and ten rams) were evaluated for their carcass and meat quality after being fed with whole cotton seed as a supplement over a period of twelve months on-farm. Supplementation with the whole cotton seed had no adverse effect on carcass quality but significantly (p<0.001) improved juiciness. Tenderness, flavour and overall liking were also better in the supplemented group compared to the non-supplemented group. The results suggest that whole cotton seed could be used as a supplementary feed to improve the productivity and meat quality of small ruminants at a cheaper cost in the study area.|
