The in situ ruminal degradability of concentrate feedstuffs in steers as affected by level of feed consumption and ratio of grass silage to concentrate



The in situ ruminal degradability of concentrate feedstuffs in steers as affected by level of feed consumption and ratio of grass silage to concentrate



Animal Feed Science and Technology 100(1/2): 15-30



The effect of feeding level (11 and 17 g dry matter (DM)/kg body weight (BW)/d) and ratio of grass silage to concentrate (250:750, 500:500 and 750:250 g/kg DM) on the in situ ruminal degradability of concentrate ingredients was examined. Six ruminally fistulated Friesian steers were used in a six (treatments) by six (21-d period) Latin square experiment. Ruminal disappearance of DM, nitrogen (N) and organic matter (OM) from the test feeds was measured at 0, 2, 4, 8, 14, 24 and 48 h.
