Chemical composition and nutritive value of dried Jhanji (Scirpus articulatus)



Chemical composition and nutritive value of dried Jhanji (Scirpus articulatus)



Indian Veterinary Journal 60(2): 134-137



Jhanji (Scirpus articulatus) collected from ponds in West Bengal was dried and fed in a 9-day metabolism trial to 6 adult Red Sindhi steers as the only source of feed, apart from 30 g salt daily. Average daily DM intake was 1.54 kg/100 kg liveweight. The dried S. articulatus had digestible crude protein 4.82% and total digestible nutrients 46.12% of DM. Daily balance of nitrogen was +10.34 g, calcium +0.35 g and phosphorus -1.51 g.
