Digestibility in vivo and nutritive value of legume hays in sheep



Digestibility in vivo and nutritive value of legume hays in sheep



Annali della Facolta di Medicina Veterinaria di Pisa 41: 135-145



The chemical composition of 1st and 2nd cut hays of Trifolium alexandrinum, T. pratense, sulla (Hedysarum coronarium) and 2nd cut lucerne is tabulated. Protein content was high, except for 1st cut T. alexandrinum (11.85%) and sulla (8.64%). Major elements, except for sodium, were sufficient to cover theoretical maintenance requirements for sheep. Manganese and zinc were below INRA deficiency limits of 45 mg/kg.
