Ruminai degradability of sugar cane fiber, when supplemented with different protein sources through in situ bag technique
Keywords:Digestibility, Bovine, Sugar cane, Fistula.
AbstractFour rumen cannulated steers were used in a 4 x 4 change over design, to test the effects of the following four treatments: A) cotton seed oil meal, B) soybean oil meal, C) raw soybean and D) toasted soybean, over neutral detergent fiber (NDF) rumen degradability of sugar cane, used as only roughage through nylon bags in situ technique. Sugar cane fiber (NDF)
disappearance in the rumen was smallest for whole soybean and highest for cottonseed oil meal (p < 0.05). Soybeans, raw and toasted, showed statistical similarity.
