Utilization of sunflower (Helianthus annuus) heads as roughage source in complete diets



Utilization of sunflower (Helianthus annuus) heads as roughage source in complete diets



Indian Journal of Animal Sciences 67(12): 1098-1100



Two complete diets containing (i) 40% ground sunflower heads and (ii) 20% ground flower heads + 20% lucerne hay, were compared with a conventional diet containing concentrate mixture and chopped sorghum straw fed separately to 3 permanently fistulated crossbred bulls in digestion and metabolism experiments in a 3 x 3 Latin square design. Organic matter, N-free extract (P<0.05), CP and lignin (P<0.01) digestibility was higher on diet (ii).
