Abstract

Six crossbred castrated male steers, with 420 kg of average live weight and with rumen canulas, were used to estimate degradabilities of cotton seed oil meal and raw whole soybeans, in diets with 60% of dry matter as sugar cane bagasse (SCB) treated by: A) sodium hydroxyde 2% solution; B) wood ashes 30% solution and C) water. Treatments with solutions were made through SCB immersion. Statistical design was a change-over whit two groups of 3 animals each. Results showed no effect of SCB treatments over soybean and cotton seed protein degradabilities. Effective degradability was 58.13% (cotton seed) and 90.64% (raw soybeen), with rumen effluent rate of 0.02.
