Effect of sulfur supplementation on in vitro cellulose digestion and on nutrient utilization and nitrogen metabolism of lambs fed various forages


, : Effect of sulfur supplementation on in vitro cellulose digestion and on nutrient utilization and nitrogen metabolism of lambs fed various forages. Dissertation Abstracts International, B 43(9): 2753

The effects of supplementing low and good quality tall fescue hay and tropical star grass hay with 0.15% sodium sulphate or DL-methionine for feeding to crossbred lambs were investigated. Acid detergent fibre and neutral detergent fibre digestibilities were improved by S supplementation to low quality tall fescue. Levels of essential amino acids were higher with the 0.15% sulphate-S diet.
