Composition and fodder value of foliage and twigs. III. Fodder value of shed foliage and winter twigs.



Composition and fodder value of foliage and twigs. III. Fodder value of shed foliage and winter twigs.



Archiv fur Tierernahrung, Berlin 1(6): 342-360



Compared with green leaves, the shed leaves have a lower protein and a higher fibre content; the digestibility of the protein is very small. On the other hand, the fodder value of winter twigs is higher than that of summer twigs, the best species being Sambucus nigra, Robinia pseudoacacia and Fraxinus, and the worst, Birch and Oak. The digestibility of the total organic substance varied widely with species, while that of the protein was as a rule high.
