Dry fallen mango tree leaves as roughage source in the complete feeds for sheep



Dry fallen mango tree leaves as roughage source in the complete feeds for sheep



Indian Journal of Animal Sciences 54(11): 1046-1050



To study the use of fallen mango leaves as roughage source in complete feeds, a metabolism trial was conducted on 24 adults Nellore rams divided into 4 groups of 6 animals each and fed ad lib, with 4 complete rations. The rations were complete feed (mash) with 30% mango leaves; complete feed (pellet) with 30% mango leaves; complete feed (mash) with 60% mango leaves, and complete feed (pellet) with 60% mango leaves. The dry matter intake was more (P < 0.01) with the pelleted rations than the corresponding mash rations. The dry matter, organic matter and nitrogen-free extract digestibilities differed significantly (P < 0.01) with all the rations. The crude-fiber digestibility was more (P < 0.01) with rations containing 30% mango leaves. The crude protein digestibility was highest (P < 0.01) with ration 2 and lowest with ration 3. Higher Ca balance (P < 0.01) was observed with ration 2 than in all other rations, while N and P balance were same with all the rations. Digestible crude protein values were higher (P < 0.01) with pelleted rations. Total digestible nutrients differed significantly (P < 0.01) with all the rations. Lesser use of rations containing higher levels of mango leaves might be due to higher tannin content.
