An assessment of Livestock and poultry feed resource availability was done based on secondary data in surplus rainfall zones of AndhraPradesh state. The region possesses overall DM availability of 16.93 million tonnes (Mt) from various feed resources. Crop residues contributed to 84.4% of total DM supply for livestock in the region. The contribution of the concentrates towards the overall DM availability of the region is 5.76%. The DM availability per RLU/day for the region as a whole is 7.84 kg with the values ranging from 3.26 in Srikakulam district to 14.85 in west Godavari district. The study revealed that there was a surplus DM in Godavari (163.4%) and Krishna Zones (120.45%), and DM deficit in the North Costal Zone (63.50%) of the region. The percentage availability of green forages, dry forages and concentrates per RLU for the whole region are 157.6, 187.9 and 18.4% respectively.
