Obtaining produce from highly productive animals is directly related to the provision of a variety of high–quality feed, balanced by energy, nutrients, minerals and biologically active substances. In addressing this issue, a certain role belongs to plant food production waste, which is valuable energy, protein and mineral raw materials for compound feed industry, containing vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other components necessary for animal organism. The most valuable vegetable food waste includes grains waste, sugar beet pulp and molasses, alcohol bard, spent grains, products of processing sunflower seeds, soy, rape, corn and potato pulp as well as fruit and berry pomace. Aim of research – to determine the effect of feeding milk cows with feed concentrate in compound feed for dairy cows in mid–lactation on diet nutrients digestibility. Article is devoted to high performance cows using their ration of food production wastes of plant origin. The most valuable of these include grain waste, beet pulp and molasses, alcohol bard, brewer's grain, processed sunflower seeds, soybeans, canola, corn and potato pulp, fruit pomace. The inclusion in the diet of cattle feed concentrate prepared from secondary products of sugar beet to 15 25% in the composition of feed enhances digestive processes in the rumen that provides improved digestibility of nutrients to 1.8 7.8% and nitrogen deposition 10.826.4%. Found significant differences of total protein in the blood 4.75.8% (P < 0.05) in animals, which replace 20 25% of the diet (by weight) referred concentrate. The tendency of reducing the concentration of urea in animal research groups that is most pronounced in cows, which replace 20 25% of the diet (by weight) concentrate by 9.8 and 7.3% relative to the control group. This indicates the activation of metabolic processes in the research groups of cows.
