Cassava peel, poultry litter and banana leaves were ensiled for 28 days in four treatments S0, S1, S2 and S3 respectively. S0-100% cassava peel, S1,70%cassava peel+30% poultry litter, S2,70% cassava peel+30% dried poultry waste, S3,40% cassava peel +40%banana leaf+20% dried poultry waste. Result for chemical composition of silage during the experiment shows that S2 has the highest value for dry matter (50.21) and S0 had the lowest value (25.10). S1 had the highest value for crude protein (23.55) and highest of crude fibre (42.70). The pH of the silage ranged from 4.0 -4.4The result for mineral composition of the silage showed that S1 had the highest Calcium (Ca) content of 330.0mg/100g while S0, S2, and S3 showed similarities in values recorded respectively (230.3mh/100g, 250.0mg/100g and 240.0mg/100g). The values for Manganese (Mn), Zinc (Zn) and Copper (Cu) were relatively low. Based on the results of the research, it could be concluded that ensiling of cassava peels, banana leaves and dried poultry waste could be adopted and best utilized as supplementation of feeds for ruminant animals.
