- This study was aimed to evaluate the effect of Commelina congesta extract administration on gross milk composition, milk component yield and some blood traits in dairy Cameroon dwarf goats. Thirty-six goat were assigned to two groups balanced for daily milk yield; an untreated control group (n=18), that did not receive extract injection, and treated group (n=18) injected with the 90 mg extract at daily intervals for 30 day. Milk yield was recorded daily and four samples of milk and blood per goat were collected at day 1, 7, 14, 21, and 28. Daily component yield, milk composition and blood traits, were analyzed through ANOVA. When compared to untreated control group, goats injected with the plant extract showed higher yield of milk protein (+ 19%, p
