Effect of ammonia treatment of wheat straw on the chemical composition, in-vitro digestion and fibre degradability in the rumen



Effect of ammonia treatment of wheat straw on the chemical composition, in-vitro digestion and fibre degradability in the rumen



Indian Journal of Animal Sciences 60(1): 99-103



500 g samples of wheat straw containing 10 or 20% moisture were treated with 2, 3, 4 or 5% (w/w) anhydrous ammonia, or were not treated, and sealed in polythene bags, for 30 days at 20 degrees -27 degrees C. The proximate composition of the samples was determined, and in vitro digestibility estimated using the nylon-bag technique.
