Digestibility and voluntary intake by sheep of five Digitaria species



Digestibility and voluntary intake by sheep of five Digitaria species



Australian Journal of Experimental Agriculture and Animal Husbandry 24(127): 494-500



Voluntary intake and digestibility by sheep were estimated for 5 species of Digitaria when grown as swards, cut at 5 different stages of growth and analysed for neutral-detergent solubles, hemicellulose, cellulose, lignin, nitrogen, sulphur, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, silicon, copper, manganese and zinc.
