Effect of ammoniation on nutritional and preservatory characteristics of forages


, : Effect of ammoniation on nutritional and preservatory characteristics of forages. Dissertation Abstracts International, B Sciences and Engineering 45(1): 4

Dry and high moisture (HM) Cynodon dactylon Coastal hay was exposed to 0, 2 or 4% NH3 (DM basis) for 1, 3 or 6 weeks. Ammonia treatment increased pH and in vitro DM digestibility in both hays and the lactic acid content of HM hay. CP equivalent was increased by 13.1 and 19.4% in dry hay and by 17.1 and 25.1% in HM hay with 2 and 4% NH3 treatments, resp. Hemicellulose decreased linearly as NH3 level increased in HM hay. The opt. NH3 level was between 2 and 4%.
