Effect of feeding urea treated rice straw on rumen volume and flow rates of liquid and solid digesta in crossbred cattle



Effect of feeding urea treated rice straw on rumen volume and flow rates of liquid and solid digesta in crossbred cattle



Indian Journal of Animal Nutrition 7(2): 113-118



Rumen fluid volume (RFV) and flow rates of liquid and solid digesta were determined in Karnl Fries male calves fed on untreated (A); 4% urea + 40% moisture treated (B); and 5% urea + 30% moisture treated (C) rice straw as basal roughage and concentrate mixture as per their requirements. RFV and DM in the rumen content at 0 h were not affected by dietary treatments. Flow rates of liquid and solid digesta increased significantly (P < 0.01) in animals fed urea treated rice straw. A positive and significant (P < 0.01) correlation was observed between RFV and body weight and DMI. The values of RFV as per cent of body weight and DM passage rate as per cent of DM in the rumen increased significantly (P < 0.01) in groups B and C than in group A, while ratio of flow rate and RFV and DM in the rumen at O h as per cent of DMI was not affected by dietary treatments.
