Voluntary intake, chemical composition, and nutrient digestibility of pangolagrass and stargrass hays



Voluntary intake, chemical composition, and nutrient digestibility of pangolagrass and stargrass hays



Journal of Agriculture of the University of Puerto Rico 62(4): 389-398



In a semiarid zone of Puerto Rico fertilized pure stands of Pangola grass (Digitaria decumbens) and of star grass (Cynodon nlemfuensis) were grown in 1972. The plots were irrigated in the dry season. After an initial cut to 5 cm high, the plots were harvested after 30, 45 or 60 days, sun-dried into hay, then chopped. For 21 days 4 goats and 4 bullocks were given the 6 hays and faeces were collected on the last 7 days, when the animals got 90% of voluntary intakes.
