Note on the nitrogen value of poor forages treated with urea or ammonia



Note on the nitrogen value of poor forages treated with urea or ammonia



Annales de Zootechnie 34(3): 335-346



Late cut hay from natural grassland and wheat straw treated with 3% ammonia or 5% urea in bales sealed with a plastic sheet from 9 Sept. to 19 Dec. 1983 were fed ad lib. to 16 two-year-old Texel wethers. The rumen liquor composition was measured in 4 rumen-fistulated wethers. Straw diets were supplemented by 20 g each of Zn and S/day, and untreated straw by 100 g soyabean meal/day.
