Digestibility and feeding value of peanut hulls for swine



Digestibility and feeding value of peanut hulls for swine



Journal of Animal Science 62(2): 412-421



Twenty-four crossbred gilts weighing 72 +or- 0.7 kg were used in 2 balance trials to estimate the digestibility of nutrient components of groundnut husks. Groundnut husks had nitrogen 1.44, neutral detergent fibre 63.6, acid detergent fibre 56.3, cellulose 45.5, hemicellulose 7.5 and lignin 7.7%. They contained calcium 0.09, phosphorus 0.09, magnesium 0.09 and potassium 0.25% with iron 295, sodium 48, manganese 34, zinc 24 and copper 14 mg/kg. Gross energy was 4380 kcal/kg.
