The in vitro technique: its modification for estimating digestibility of large numbers of tropical pasture samples



The in vitro technique: its modification for estimating digestibility of large numbers of tropical pasture samples



Technical Paper, Division of Tropical Pastures, CSIRO (8): 15



A system, based on the in vitro technique of Tilley and Terry, for determining the digestibility of large numbers of forage samples is described. Results are given of determinations of the effects of growth stage and season on the estimated digestibility in vivo of Rhodes grass, Pangola grass, green panic grass, Kikuyu grass and Setaria splendida. Digestibility decreased by 0.2 digestibility unit/day in summer regrowth, compared with 0.1 unit/day in autumn regrowth.
