Studies in the intake and digestibility of two varieties (Serdang and Coloniao) of Guinea grass (Panicum maximum) by goats and sheep. 2. Chopped and pelleted grass fed to sheep


Studies in the intake and digestibility of two varieties (Serdang and Coloniao) of Guinea grass (Panicum maximum) by goats and sheep. 2. Chopped and pelleted grass fed to sheep



MARDI Research Bulletin 5(2): 110-121



2. Intake and digestibility of the Serdang and Coloniao Guinea grass described above, given chopped, were studied and also digestibility of pelleted Coloniao cut at 21 days. There were significant differences among trials in daily intakes of fresh grass and DM. Digestible energy ranged from 4.71 to 5.88 MJ/kg and 5.51 to 7.17 MJ/kg and digestible crude protein from 1.4 to 3.2% and 1.5 to 3.4% for Serdang and Coloniao, respectively.
