The influence of soybean oil meal upon roughage digestion in cattle



The influence of soybean oil meal upon roughage digestion in cattle



Journal of Animal Science 8(1): 3-8



A study was made of the favorable influence of soybean oil meal upon the digestibility of corn cobs and timothy hay when fed in a fattening cattle ration. Four rations were used, one with and one without corn cobs at an 8% protein level, and one ration with and one without corn cobs at a 15% protein level. Four steers received each of the rations in 2 separate series of trials. The digestible dry matter in corn cobs and timothy hay was increased by 14 and 17%, respectively, by the inclusion of soybean oil meal in the ration. This improvement in roughage digestion following the more liberal protein feeding was discussed on the basis of improved nutritional conditions for rumen microorganisms concerned with roughage breakdown.
