Digestibility and utilization of ammonia-treated and urea-supplemented peanut skin diets fed to cattle



Digestibility and utilization of ammonia-treated and urea-supplemented peanut skin diets fed to cattle



Journal of Animal Science 63(3): 705-714



A metabolism study and 2 feedlot trials were made to evaluate urea supplementation of groundnut skin (GS) diets and ammoniation of GS as methods of reducing detrimental effects of tannins in GS on nutrient digestibility and performance of beef cattle. Tannin content of GS was reduced by 42% after ammoniation.
