Characteristics of straw cobs used as roughage for ruminants


Muhle + Mischfuttertechnik 119(23): 318, 321
Characteristics of straw cobs used as roughage for ruminants
In this report from Krmiva, Jugoslavia, equipment is described for producing prism-shaped cobs. Winter wheat straw was cut or ground and before pressing, moisture content was adjusted by steam treatment to 11-30% and 0-7% powdered NaOH was added. Density, crumbling and abrasion characteristics of the cobs and digestibility in vitro of organic matter were evaluated. Results were optimum with 17-20% moisture and 5% NaOH.
