Fibre index of forages: its significance and use for predicting feeding value of forages



Fibre index of forages: its significance and use for predicting feeding value of forages



Annales de Zootechnie. 20: 4, 427-435



For 2 sets of 34 green grass forages and 152 hays and green legumes or grass, index of fibrousness (see Abst. 4157, Vol. 37) was studied for prediction of intake of DM, digestibility of organic matter and intake of digestible organic matter by sheep. For improving precision of prediction, the index was combined with other measurements. Weende crude fibre was the best single addition to the prediction equation.
