Effects of protein and carbohydrate supplements on feed digestion in indigenous Malaysian goats and sheep



Effects of protein and carbohydrate supplements on feed digestion in indigenous Malaysian goats and sheep



Asian Australasian Journal of Animal Sciences 13(4): 464-469



Experiments were conducted to determine the effects of soyabean meal (SBM) as a source of protein and sago meal (SM) as a source of carbohydrate on in situ and in vivo digestibility of dietary components in 4 male goats (Kambing Katjang) and 4 male sheep (Malin) weighing 25-35 kg. Rumen volume, as well as rumen fluid dilution rate were also determined. The animals were housed in single pens with individual feeding and drinking troughs and each animal was fitted with a rumen fistula.
