Green feed supports ruminant production both in terms of reducing the cost of food resources and improved the animal performance. This study carried out to determine the effects of three different grazing systems applied in a artificial pasture with triticale on the features of pasture yield. Triticale was used in order to create artificial pasture and the genotype of Turkish Saanen goat was used to implement grazing. The study was carried out in the artificial pasture belong to Technological Agricultural Development Center at Çanakkale Onsekiz Mart University in 2009. Nine goats belonging to the genotype of Turkish Saanen Goat were fed to two months on the artificial pasture with triticale through different grazing systems (Alternate Grazing, Sequential Grazing and Free Grazing) and three goats for each type of grazing system were grazed for two months. In this study, the highest herbage yield (511.43 kg/da) and the highest amount of herbage consumed (118,70 kg/da) were obtained from alternate grazing system. In addition, the highest leaf rate of herbage (65.53%) was taken from sequential grazing system. Moreover, the highest leaf protein rate of herbage 18.91% and the highest stem rate of herbage 9.22% was obtained from alternate grazing system.
