Use of the main minerals of ensiled maize by growing sheep

, : Use of the main minerals of ensiled maize by growing sheep. Annales de Zootechnie 25(4): 543-549

Six lambs, weight 28 kg, were adapted to eat only maize silage containing Ca 3.8, P 2.1, K 11.4, Na 0.25, Mg 1.3 and crude protein 85 g/kg DM. For the trial period of 10 days the silage, with urea added at 1% of DM to increase protein to 11.4%, was limited to 2.3 kg daily with 35.7% DM. Daily retention was Ca 0.39 and P 0.20 g, each about a third of the requirement for a gain of 140 g. Other retentions were K 2.37, Na 0.13, Mg 0.07 and N 4.0 g.

Gueguen, L.; Durand, M., 1976: Utilization of the essential minerals of maize silage by growing sheep. Mineral balances (P, Ca, Mg, K and Na) were carried out in six 28 kg lambs fed maize silage (3.8 g Ca and 2.1 g P per kg dry matter) enriched with urea (1% D.M.) without mineral supplementation. Endogenous fecal losses of P were determined by the...

Digestibility of silages of wet maize gluten feed (MGF), wet maize bran (MB) and whole maize crop (MC) were compared using wethers fed at maintenance. Dry matter was significantly (P lt 0.05) better digestible in MGF than in MB with intermediate d...

In 7 trials, 10 silages with 50-100% of the cob were compared with control silages w...
