Effect of ammonia treatment of wheat straw on fibre digestion and volatile fatty acid production rates in the rumen of male Murrah buffaloes






Indian Journal of Animal Nutrition 1(1): 27-30

Effect of ammonia treatment of wheat straw on fibre digestion and volatile fatty acid production rates in the rumen of male Murrah buffaloes

Nine fistulated male Murrah buffaloes were given a diet containing wheat straw untreated, or treated with 3 and 4% NH3 (v/w). The DM consumption increased insignificantly by feeding of ammoniated straw. The mean values of total volatile fatty acids (TVFA) in mmol/100 ml rumen fluid were 7.14, 8.73 and 8.43, respectively. Acetate content decreased while propionate increased significantly in animals fed on ammoniated straw. Daily TVFA production rates were 9.28, 11.62 and 11.25 moles.
