Abstract: The present research work was designed to evaluate the daily weight gain (gms) of growing female Black Bengal goat by using the four different concentration of Moringa oleifera leaf powder (0%, 10%, 15% and 20%) by weight basis in feed. A total of twenty four, 4 to 5 months old goats having 6-8 kg body weight were procured and after 10 days of adjustment period they were randomly divided into four experimental groups. Different combinations of feed were offered to them for a period upto 9 months of age. The investigation of above research work showed that goats fed on diets containing Moringa oleifera leaf powder (MOLP) gains higher body weight gain per day than that of goats feeding on control diet (0% MOLP). The overall mean of average daily gain in goats were 35.56±3.23, 47.30±4.54, 47.30±5.52 and 47.30±2.45 g for T0, T2, T2 and T3 groups respectively. It could be concluded that inclusion of MOLP at 10%, 15% and 20% in goats diet improves the growth performance than control diet however, the overall result on growth performance was shown by the goats fed with 15% MOLP.
