The  aims  of  this  experiment  were  to    identify  and  characterize of sediment  product from cattle rumen liquor as a source of amino acids, minerals and vitamins. The sediment were obtained as pellets upon centrifugation of rumen liquor at 10,000 g for 10 minutes for collection of supernatant. The sediment were evaluated for amino  acids, minerals and vitamins composition and chararacterized for the pH,  solubility of dry  matter,  specific  density,  bulk  and  compacted  bulk  densities  and  angle  of  response.  Result  of  the experiment showed that sediment contained higher minerals:  Na, K and Fe compared with the commercial premix, but  lower in B-vitamins and  amino acids. The composition of mineral Na,  K, and Fe from rumen liquor of local cattle was 13.47%, 7.73 % and 14.52 %,  while Na, K, and Fe from  rumen liquor of  imported cattle was 18.40%, 10.25%, and 14.52% respectively. The sediment had pH range from 10.01-10.03, the dry matter solubility   was 35.5%  up to 39.1%. The  sediment from imported cattle had  higher specific density, bulk  and  compacted  bulk  densities  and  angle  of  response  than  that  of  local  cattle. It  is  concluded  that sediment from cattle rumen liquor contained high  Na, K  and Fe, low amino acids and B-vitamin,  high pH and low solubility.
