The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of the inclusion of different levels of mango residue in nature (0, 10, 20 and 30% fresh matter) in the mixed silages of elephant grass and cassava peel. Maximum effluent loss (P <0.05) was observed with the inclusion of 24.3% of mango residue. In the silages with 20 and 30% of mango residue, higher protein contents were observed. The addition of 10.0% of mango residue in nature in elephant grass silage and cassava peel, promotes better forage conservation.
