Chemical composition, voluntary intake and apparent digestibility of hay from aerial parts of cassava


, : Chemical composition, voluntary intake and apparent digestibility of hay from aerial parts of cassava. Pesquisa Agropecuaria Brasileira 17(11): 1679-1684

Chemical composition, digestibility and voluntary intake of hay made from aerial parts of 10- to 12-month-old cassava Caravela were evaluated in feeding trials with 2-yr-old sheep. CP, CF and DM contents of (a) field-dried hay and (b) oven-dried hay were 22.2 and 23.1%, 24.9 and 27.4% and 88.3 and 88.0% for (a) and (b), resp. Intake of DM, CP and total digestible nutrients were 70.0 and 78.3, 15.8 and 18.5 and 30.1 and 32.7 g/kg liveweight0.75 for (a) and (b), resp.
