Digestion and utilization of ammoniated grass-legume silage



Digestion and utilization of ammoniated grass-legume silage



Journal of Animal Science 62(1): 235-243



Mature orchardgrass-clover herbage was treated with anhydrous ammonia at 0, 1.5 and 3.0% DM before ensiling and given to ram lambs in a 21-day metabolism trial. Ammoniation at 3.0% of DM increased (P<0.05) digestibility of DM in vivo, neutral detergent fibre (NDF), acid detergent fibre (ADF), hemicellulose and cellulose by 13.4, 16.8, 17.9, 15.5 and 17.8 percentage units, respectively.
