Effect of long term feeding of urea (ammonia) treated wheat straw on intake, nutrient utilization, N metabolism and economics of feed cost in yearling Murrah buffalo bulls



Effect of long term feeding of urea (ammonia) treated wheat straw on intake, nutrient utilization, N metabolism and economics of feed cost in yearling Murrah buffalo bulls



Buffalo Journal 6(1): 49-62



For 160 days, 10 yearling Murrah bulls of similar body weight were given a concentrate mixture plus untreated wheat straw or urea (ammonia) treated wheat straw. A metabolic trial was conducted for 7 days at the end of the experiment. Results showed that ammoniation of straw improved chemical composition and increased nitrogen content and solubility of hemicelluloses.
