Effect on digestibility and nitrogen content of barley straw of different ammonia treatments



Effect on digestibility and nitrogen content of barley straw of different ammonia treatments



Animal Feed Science and Technology 2(2): 131-142



The effect on solubility in cellulolytic enzyme suspensions, digestibility in vitro and CP content of treating barley straw with various dosages of NH3 (2.6-5.9%) at various temp. (15-75 deg C) for various treatment times (1-14 days), was determined. An increase in any of the above factors resulted in an increased intensity of treatment, with an increase in temp. of 15 deg being equal to an increased NH3-dosage level of 1.5% or prolongation of the treatment time by a factor of 4.5.
