According to the 2019 data in Turkey, while the amount of roughage needed for 19 million livestock units is 86 million tons, the forage deficit is 55 million tons. On the other hand, Turkey has a very rich flora and 12 476 (4.080 endemic) contains plant species. But, it’s estimated that this number will decrease in the level of 34-42% in the 2030 year. In order to protect the plants in the natural flora, it is of great importance to characterize of these plants and investigate the possibilities for cultivating. The aim of the study was to determine some quality traits of Bituminaria bituminosa (L.) C.H. Stirtion collected from ten different locations in the natural flora of Bilecik province. Plants were collected at the flowering stage and investigated for crude protein ratio (CP), acid detergent fiber (ADF), neutral detergent fiber (NDF), potassium (K), phosphorus (P), calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), digestible dry matter (DDM), dry matter intake (DMI), total digestible nutrients (TDN), relative feed value (RFV) and relative feed quality (RFQ) values. CP, RFV, RFQ and K values of genotypes ranged between 21.05-13.65%, 139.48-95.79, 138.87-84.58 and 3.30-2.07%, respectively. As a result, it has been determined that Bituminaria bituminosa genotypes collected from the natural flora of Bilecik province have been sufficient for animal feeding as roughage in terms of all the quality traits.
