|Title:||Ensiled brewers' grains increased feed intake, digestibility and N retention in cattle fed ensiled cassava root, urea and rice straw with fresh cassava foliage or water spinach as main source of protein||Contributor(s):||Inthapanya, Sangkhom (author); Preston, T R (author); Leng, Ronald (author)||Publication Date:||2016||Open Access:||Yes||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/21950||Open Access Link:||http://www.lrrd.cipav.org.co/lrrd28/2/sang28020.htm||Abstract:||The experiment was carried out to study effects of supplementary dietary protein of differing solubilities, and of brewers' grains on feed intake, digestibility and N balance in local 'Yellow' cattle fed ensiled cassava root, urea and rice straw as basal diet. Four local ('Yellow') male cattle were assigned to 4 treatments in a 4*4 Latin square arrangement: BG-CSF: brewers' grains with cassava foliage, BG-WS: brewers' grains with water spinach, NBG-CSF: no brewers' grains with cassava foliage, NBG-WS: no brewers' grains with water spinach. Experimental periods were of 15 days: 9 days for adaptation, 5 days for collection of feces and urine and the last day to take rumen fluid by stomach tube. Adding 5% of brewers' grains to the diet increased the DM intake, the apparent DM digestibility and N retention. Similar but smaller benefits were found when water spinach replaced cassava foliage as the main source of (true) protein.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Livestock Research for Rural Development, 28(2), p. 1-5||Publisher:||Centro para la Investigacion en Sistemas Sostenibles de Produccion Agropecuaria||Place of Publication:||Colombia||ISSN:||0121-3784||Field of Research (FOR):||070204 Animal Nutrition||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||839802 Management of Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Animal Production||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 4
