Chemical composition and in vitro digestibility of Brachiaria decumbens Stapf. hay treated with urea



Chemical composition and in vitro digestibility of Brachiaria decumbens Stapf. hay treated with urea



Revista Brasileira de Zootecnia 34(3): 720-725



An experiment was conducted to evaluate the effects of urea treatment on the chemical-bromatological compounds and in vitro dry matter digestibility (IVDMD) of Brachiaria decumbens hay. The hay were reconstituted with water to obtain the final forage moisture concentration of 30%, and treated with urea at 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10% of the forage dry matter. A completely randomized design with three replicates was used as experimental design.
