Digestible and metabolizable energy value of fodders in relation to their chemical composition in ruminants



Digestible and metabolizable energy value of fodders in relation to their chemical composition in ruminants



Indian Journal of Animal Sciences 55(6): 499-501



A metabolic trial of 7 days was performed 21 days after 5 male buffaloes were given at maintenance level the single forages berseem (Trifolium alexandrinum), cluster bean, maize, pearl millet, oats, oat silage, sorghum, millet stover and wheat straw. Simple regression equations were used to calculate total digestible nutrients (TDN), digestible energy (DE) and metabolizable energy (ME) from crude fibre (F): TDN = 143.92 - 2.79F; DE = 3.939 - 0.047F; ME = 3.331 - 0.04F.
