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

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

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.
