Effects of sodium hydroxide-treated straw on the metabolic profile of the rumen liquor, health and liveweight gain of fattening bulls

, : Effects of sodium hydroxide-treated straw on the metabolic profile of the rumen liquor, health and liveweight gain of fattening bulls. Veterinarni Medicina 33(10): 599-606

Chopped wheat or barley straw was sprayed with 25% NaOH with urea 10 to 15 litres/100 kg straw; concentrates were added, and the mixture was pelleted. Pellets contained 67% straw, 30% concentrates, 2% NaOH and 1% urea. A group of 8 bulls, initial weight 190 to 225 kg, were given daily for a year the pelleted feed 9.2 and hay 1 kg. A similar control group was fed on a diet of hay, maize silage, straw and concentrates.
