The effect of supplementation with leucaena hay in partial replacement with the babassu pie, on grazing behavior, average daily gain (ADG) and infection by gastrointestinal nematodes in goats was evaluated. 15 male goats were arranged in DIC, factorial 3x2, with three proportions of leucaena hay (0, 20 and 40%) in two grazing cycles and five replications. The grazing cycle influenced the times for grazing and rumination. The supplementation interfered in leisure activity and supplement intake, variable also influenced by cycles. ADG was higher in cycle 1 and as well as the degree of nematode infection, it was not influenced by supplementation.
