Digestive efficiencies of goats and sheep fed native pasture and leucaena hays



Digestive efficiencies of goats and sheep fed native pasture and leucaena hays



Proceedings of the Nutrition Society of Australia 10: 104



Four goats and 4 sheep were given one of 3 diets for 25 days each; kunai (Imperata cylindrica) hay sprayed with 30 g urea/kg to appetite, kunai hay to appetite and 300 g Leucaena leucocephala hay to achieve equal intakes of the 2 forages or 600 g L. leucocephala hay daily. Goats had significantly higher intakes of kunai hay than sheep and digestibility coefficients were consistently higher for goats than for sheep; rumen fluid outflow rates were lower in goats than in sheep.
