Effect of feeding ammoniated bago molasses on live weight gain and nutrient utilization in cross bred calves



Effect of feeding ammoniated bago molasses on live weight gain and nutrient utilization in cross bred calves



Indian Journal of Animal Sciences 53(11): 1177-1180



Twelve male cross-bred (Holstein .times. Hariana) cales were randomly divided into 3 groups of 4 each. Ration for animals in group 1 consisted of bagasse treated with 2% anhydrous NH3 and impregnated with 10% molasses and was offered ad lib. Those in groups 2 and 3 received a concentrate mixture in addition to the ammoniated or untreated bago-molasses, respectively, to provide nutrients as recommended by Sen et al. (1978). NH3 treatment increased crude protein content of bagasse about 3 fold, and improved the digestibility of crude protein and crude fiber of the ration. N balance was significantly more in gorup 2 than in group 3. Live-weight gain was also higher in group 2 than in group 3, although the latter group consumed more concentrate mixture. Animals in group 1 showed poor live-weight gain. Feeding rations containing NH3-treated bagasse with 10% molasses to growing calves saves a lot of concentrate mixture.
