Studies on the digestion of forage in the rumen using in vitro rumen fermentation technique. 1. Changes of in vitro digestion with advancing maturity of forage



Studies on the digestion of forage in the rumen using in vitro rumen fermentation technique. 1. Changes of in vitro digestion with advancing maturity of forage



Japanese Journal of Zootechnical Science 43(9): 499-505



1. Effect of plant maturity of cocksfoot and lucerne on chemical composition, digestibility and production of volatile fatty acids (FVA) in an artificial rumen was studied. Cocksfoot was harvested at 6 and lucerne at 5 stages of maturity. Crude protein, ether extract, crude fibre, N-free extract, ash, cell-wall constituents (CWC), acid detergent fibre (ADF), acid detergent lignin (ADL), cellulose (C) and hemicellulose (HC) fractions were estimated.
