Nutritive improvement of some low quality roughages for ruminants ii. the effect of spraying urea vs. microbial treatment on the quality of sugar cane bagasse


Egyptian Journal of Animal Production 25(2): 343-353
Nutritive improvement of some low quality roughages for ruminants ii. the effect of spraying urea vs. microbial treatment on the quality of sugar cane bagasse
Sugar-cane bagasse was treated with NaOH or sodium hypochlorite. Both treated bagasse were fermented with Trichoderma viride (T. V.) fungi. Sodium hypochlorite treated bagasse was sprayed with urea solution (4%). The three treatments used increased greatly CP content and decreased CF, NDF, ADL, NFE and hemicellulose contents of bagasse. Cellulose and ADF contents, however, of untreated bagasse were nearly similar to those of almost all treatments used. Fungal treatments increased ash content of bagasse. The three treatments used greatly increased (P < 0.01) IVDMD values and In Situ DM degradability at almost all incubation period used (4, 8, 12, 24 and 48 hr.) of bagasse. No significant differences were observed among the three treatments used. Highest values, however, were recorded for bagasse treated with sodium hypochlorite followed by fermentation with T. V. fungi. The present study suggests that the chemical composition and nutritive value of bagasse can greatly be improved by fungal fermentation. A similar improvement can be achieved by spraying sodium hypochlorite treated bagasse with urea solution (4%).
