Studies in the intake and digestibility of two varieties (Serdang and Coloniao) of Guinea grass (Panicum maximum) by goats and sheep. 1. Long grass


Studies in the intake and digestibility of two varieties (Serdang and Coloniao) of Guinea grass (Panicum maximum) by goats and sheep. 1. Long grass



MARDI Research Bulletin 5(2): 91-109



1. Results are presented of 5 balance studies on the intake and digestibility of 2 varieties, Serdang and Coloniao of Guinea grass (Panicum maximum) each cut at 5 stages of growth, 16 to 19, 21 to 28, 28 to 35, 35 to 42 and 42 to 49 days. Coloniao was better than Serdang in chemical composition with gross energy 16.9 and 16.8, 16.5 and 16.6, 16.4 and 16.5, 16.1 and 16.1 and 16.1 and 14.9 MJ/kg at the 5 stages.
