The present study was conducted in Butana area which is frequently faced with rangeland deterioration. The objective was to mitigate fodder scarcity during summer. Two sites were selected, one at Sobagh enclosure established by IFAD, the other site was at EL-Adid ELtuwal village (~70 km south of Sobagh). At the two sites 3 types of range species (Clitoria ternatea, Cyamopsis tetragonoloba and Phaseolus trilobus) together Moringa oleifera seeds were planted. Plants measurements were done for successive 2 years during the rainy season, the measurements included: dry yield (ton/ha), Milk yield production was compared between groups of goats fed range species herbaceous and Moringa grown as fodder. Dry matter yield (ton/ha) for the dry seasons at the two sites showed that, Clitoria ternatea and Cyamopsis tetragonoloba had the highest (<0.001) yields (0.71 ton/ha) while Phaseolus trilobus had the least yield (0.28 ton/ha). Also Moringa oelifera showed significant increase (P <0.001) compared to Phaseolus trilobus. Milk yields increased significantly (P <0.001) with feeding Moringa oleifera (0.56 liter) compared to other range species plants (0.41 liter) and also increased significantly (P <0.001) when feeding range species plants compared to the control (0.33 liter).
