Digestion trials of feeds with ruminants - apparent digestibility and TDN contents of maize grain when given in various physical forms to sheep and cattle



Digestion trials of feeds with ruminants - apparent digestibility and TDN contents of maize grain when given in various physical forms to sheep and cattle



Japanese Journal of Zootechnical Science 55(10): 755-759



In digestion trials in 1981-2, cattle and sheep were fed on diets of hay, hay cubes, and whole shelled, cracked and ground flint maize grain. Data on composition and digestibility of components in the diets are presented. TDN of whole shelled, cracked and ground maize were 48.7, 68.1 and 86.4% DM, resp., in cattle and 91.7, 94.9 and 97.7% DM in sheep. Similar trends were observed in DCP.
