Digestibility of dietary nutrients and growth in bulls given chemically treated straw

Digestibility of dietary nutrients and growth in bulls given chemically treated straw

Sel' skokhozyaistvennaya Biologiya (11): 74-76

For 112 days 3 groups of Black Pied bulls were given mixed feeds based on silage with untreated wheat straw at 20% or wheat straw soaked in 2% sodium hydroxide solution for 10 to 15 min, at 20 or 30%. Mean daily gain was 833, 964 and 934 g and nitrogen retention 20.18, 24.06 and 21.06 g daily, respectively. In rumen fluid cellulolytic activity and volatile fatty acids were greater and the molar ratio of volatile fatty acids better with treated straw.
