Effect of ammoniation on the nutritive value of different roughages in the fattening of lambs



Effect of ammoniation on the nutritive value of different roughages in the fattening of lambs



Pakistan Veterinary Journal 6(2): 76-79



To study the effect of ammoniation on the nutritive value of wheat straw and sugarcane pith, a fattening trial was conducted on four groups of 64 male Lohi lambs. The roughages were treated with ammonia at 3.5% level for 15 days and incorporated at 22.5% level of the experimental rations. The experiment was of 84 days duration. There was a significant (P < 0.05) improvement in the weight gain and feed efficiency of the lambs fed ammonia-treated roughages as compared with the non-treated. However, there was no significant difference in the feed consumption of the lambs fed different experimental rations. The digestibility trail revealed that ammonia treatment of roughages significantly (P < 0.05) increased the digestibility of crude protein, but had no effect on the digestibility of other nutrient.
