Chemical composition, nutrients and energy digestibility of pearl millets (Pennisetum glaucum) fed to growing pigs



Chemical composition, nutrients and energy digestibility of pearl millets (Pennisetum glaucum) fed to growing pigs



Revista Brasileira de Zootecnia 34(2): 520-528



Two digestibility trials were carried out to study the nutritive value of 4 types of pearl millet (BN2, Comum, Iapar and Iapar-Repasse) ground through 3-, 2- and 1-mm screens. The digestibility coefficient (DC) of gross energy (GEDC) and gross energy metabolization coefficient (GEMC) relative to 3-mm screen were 63.09 and 61.20% (Comum), 71.57 and 69.66% (Iapar) and 67.39 and 65.60% (BN2), respectively. The GEDC and GEMC of COMUM were lower than that of IAPAR, and both were similar to BN2.
