The voluntary intake of pelleted diets containing sodium hydroxide treated wheat straw by sheep part 2 the effect of the proportion of beet pulp molasses in the diet

The voluntary intake of pelleted diets containing sodium hydroxide treated wheat straw by sheep part 2 the effect of the proportion of beet pulp molasses in the diet
In 2 separate 4 .times. 4 Latin square experiments (Experiments 1 and 2) involving sheep weighing 6.75 .+-. 3.1 kg and 76.7 .+-. 3.7 kg, wheat straw treated with 2 or 4% NaOH was replaced by increasing increments of beet pulp-molasses (2:1, wt:wt) in pelleted diets, to study the effect on the intake of digestible organic matter, Na and water. In both experiments, increasing the proportion of beet pulp-molasses increased the organic matter digestibility, but this response was less than expected with the diets based on straw treated with 4% NaOH. The maximum intake of digestible organic matter (DOM) with these diets was 1619 g daily, the associated Na and water consumptions being 46.3 and 10.5 l, respectively. In times of food scarcity, satisfactory intakes of DOM could be achieved with sheep fed pelleted diets in which NaOH-treated wheat straw and beet pulp-molases are major constituents, provided that water is available ad lib. Under these conditions sheep appear to suffer no ill effects over a 4 mo period, but the high water intakes may produce poorer utilization of dietary constituents in the alimentary canal.
