Effects of concentration of urea, addition of salt and form of urea-treated rice straw on intake and digestibility



Effects of concentration of urea, addition of salt and form of urea-treated rice straw on intake and digestibility



Ruminant feeding systems utilizing fibrous agricultural residues 1986 Proceedings of the Sixth Annual Workshop of the Australian Asian Fibrous Agricultural Residues Research Network, Los Banos, 1-3 April 1986: 177-179



A total of 24 (12 male and 12 female) Thai native cattle about 2 years old were given rice straw treated with 3 or 5% urea (weight basis), each with or without 1% salt. For each group the treated rice straw was given wet or after drying in the sun. Cattle given 5% urea-treated straw had higher voluntary intakes and digestibility values were greater than for those given 3% urea-treated straw (P<0.05).
