Effect of different levels of molasses addition during ensiling of urea rice straw on its nutritive value in buffalo calves


Indian Journal of Animal Nutrition 7(3): 227-228
Effect of different levels of molasses addition during ensiling of urea rice straw on its nutritive value in buffalo calves
Chopped rice straw was ensiled with 5% urea and 4(A), 7(B) or 10(C) per cent molasses for 2 wks and then fed ad libitum along with 1 kg green fodder to 12 indigenous female buffalo calves (1 yr; 71-105 kg) divided in 3 equal groups in a randomized block design. The digestibilities of CF and OM were significantly (P < 0.05) higher in A than in other groups. Increasing the level of molasses gave decreasing weight gain and feed digestibility in animals.
