The use of fibrous sugar cane by products by ruminants. 2. Effect of the NaOH pressure combination on the digestibility and chemical composition of bagasse and bagasse pith






Cuban Journal of Agricultural Science 10(1): 19-28

The use of fibrous sugar cane by products by ruminants. 2. Effect of the NaOH pressure combination on the digestibility and chemical composition of bagasse and bagasse pith

2. Bagasse and bagasse pith were untreated or treated with 4, 5 or 6% NaOH, each at 2, 4 or 6 atm. pressure in an autoclave, then dried in air. Digestibility of DM and degradation by cellulase were estimated in vitro. There were significant interactions among materials, NaOH and pressure. Pith was more digestible than bagasse with each amount of NaOH, but 5% NaOH at 6 atm. or 6% at 2 or 4 atm. gave similar digestibility for both materials.
