Composition of fibre metabolic rate of different fodder diets in caecum-resected and intact geese



Composition of fibre metabolic rate of different fodder diets in caecum-resected and intact geese



Chinese Journal of Animal Science 40(12): 16-18



Twelve 90-day-old Yangzhou geese were selected and divided into 2 groups in an experiment. The caecums of geese in one group were resected. These geese in 2 groups were fed with basal diet and diet supplemented with 15% of alfalfa meal or 15% of common cordgrass meal. The metabolic rates of neutral detergent fibre (NDF) in caecum-resected geese were 12.84, 6.67 and 8.13% lower than that in intact geese.
