The utilization of protein extraction residues from berseem and water hyacinth for fattening buffalo calves


Buffalo Bulletin 11(2): 40-43
The utilization of protein extraction residues from berseem and water hyacinth for fattening buffalo calves
Protein was extracted from berseem (Trifolium alexandrinum) and water hyacinth to produce berseem fibrous residues (BFR) and water hyacinth fibrous residues (WHFR), respectively. In digestibility trials 3 rams, 45 kg, were fed on diets containing rice straw, BFR or WHFR supplemented with standard concentrate for 2 weeks followed by 7 days' collection. Diets contained 14.5, 14.9 and 16.9% crude protein, respectively. For 90 days 24 growing male buffaloes, 260-265 kg, were fed on the same diets.
