Abstract—Six dried Total Mixed Ration (TMR) recipes were formulated according to Completely Randomized Design and pressed into briquettes to enhance the keeping quality. All briquettes were stored for 6 months and each was analysed for physical parameters, nutrient composition and shelf life. The interaction (period x treatment) effect was not significant in nutrients except for crude protein and ash contents. It was also not significant in shelf life parameters; yeast and mould counts and total plate counts in the recipe briquettes during six months period. There was no significant interaction effect on colour parameters; lightness (l*) and yellowness (b*) however, it was higher (p<0.05) for redness. The interaction effect was significant (p<0.05) for weight- and height-loss of the TMR briquettes. Thus, these TMR recipe briquettes could be stored for up to six months without any deleterious effect on physical, nutritive- and keeping quality parameters.
