Contribution to the study of apparent digestibility of the hay of Pangola grass (Digitaria decumbens), Para grass (Brachiaria mutica) and Coloniao grass (Panicum maximum) at different stages of development



Contribution to the study of apparent digestibility of the hay of Pangola grass (Digitaria decumbens), Para grass (Brachiaria mutica) and Coloniao grass (Panicum maximum) at different stages of development



Agronomia, Brazil 31(1): 51-56



In a digestibility trial, 9 sheep were fed ad lib. hay of Pangola grass, Para grass or Guinea grass harvested after 63, 98 and 133 days growth. There were no significant differences among grasses in DM digestibility. DM digestibility was significantly lower in hay from forage harvested at 133 days than at the other 2 stages, between which there was no difference. Protein digestibility was higher in Para grass than in the other 2 spp.
