The potential utilization of short rotation biomass produced trees as a feed source for ruminants



The potential utilization of short rotation biomass produced trees as a feed source for ruminants



Dissertation Abstracts International, B 41(12): 4318



Average CP content of the biomass of trees including honey locust, black locust, poplar and aspen was 18.8% and cellulose, lignin and zylose:arabinose ratios and energy contents were higher than in lucerne, while main and trace element contents were similar to those in lucerne. All spp., except elm, birch and willow which had significantly higher butyric acid contents, ensiled well. In vivo digestibility in steers was higher in earlier than in later harvests and in these spp. low in lignin.
