Nutritive improvement of some low quality roughages for ruminants i. effect of different microbial and chemical treatments on the quality of sugar cane bagasse



Nutritive improvement of some low quality roughages for ruminants i. effect of different microbial and chemical treatments on the quality of sugar cane bagasse



Egyptian Journal of Animal Production 25(2): 329-342



Two experiments were carried out to improve the nutritive value of sugar cane bagasse. In the 1st experiment, sugar cane bagasse was fermented with 4 different micro-organisms, namely Trichoderma viride 253 M-16, Basidomycetes sp. I, II and Gliocladium sp. Q 230. In the second one, sugar cane bagasse was fermented with Trichoderma viride (T.V.) fungi or treated with NaOH or sodium hypochlorite only. All microbial treatments used were greatly increased CP and ash and decreased CF, NFE, NDF, ADF, ADL and hemicellulose contents of bagasse. Values of IVDMD and In Situ DM disappearance increased (P < 0.01) with microbial treatments. A modification used during experiment II caused a decrease in ash content of T.V. fermented bagasse. Both NaOH and sodium hypochlorite treatments decreased CP, hemicellulose and ADL and increased ADF and cellulose contents of bagasse. Either two chemical treatments used or T.V. treatments increased significantly IVDMD values and In Situ DM disappearance at different incubation periods (4, 8, 12, 14 and 48 hr.). Highest improvement in the nutritive value of bagasse was obtained with the T.V. treatment. It was concluded that fungal fermented bagasse or chemically treated bagasse can successfully be used in rations for ruminants. A combination of NaOH or sodium hypochlorite plus urea supplement would be beneficial to the nutritive value of such products.
