  author={Songsak Chumpawadee and Kritapon Sommart and Thevin Vongpralub and Virote Pattarajinda},
The nutritive value of six protein feed sources were determined using the nylon bag technique in rumen fistulated Brahman-Thai native crossbred steers. The steers were fed 0.5% BW of concentrate and rice straw ad libitum. Nylon bags containing 5.0 g of each feed were immersed in duplicate at each time point in the ventral rumen of each steer for 2, 4, 6, 12, 24 and 48 h. The data were fitted to the equation P = a+b (1-e-ct) and effective degradability was calculated using a theoretical rumen… Expand

Evaluation and Prediction of the Nutritive Value of Underutilised Forages as Potential Feeds for Ruminants
The nutritive value of underutilised forages was good, high in crude protein and high potential degradable, and predicted solubility and effective degradability lay near the ideal prediction line, giving good predictions. Expand

Ruminal degradability of tropical feeds and their potential use in ruminant diets
The objective of this study was to determine the degradability of cassava chip (CC), cassava waste (CW), yellow sweet potato (YP), white sweet potato (WP), purple sweet potato (PP), corn meal (CM),Expand
Degradation of tropical roughages and concentrate feeds in the rumen.
Degradation characteristics of four grasses, three leguminous fodder species, jack leaves, coconut meal and rice bran were studied using the nylon bag procedure and the rate of degradation (kd) for all components studied did not differ significantly between grasses. Expand
The nutritive value of concentrate feedstuffs for ruminant animals
Abstract The aim of the study was to generate a database of ruminal degradability of dry matter (DM), and organic matter (OM) of different sources of concentrate ingredients (classified as protein,Expand
Degradability characteristics of dry matter and crude protein of forages in ruminants
The results presented in this study clearly demonstrate that the use of tabulated values for describing individual batches of forages in terms of their degradability characteristics is inaccurate since they may not reflect the particular forage being used in the ration and thus may lead to errors in diet formulation.

The nutritive value of concentrate feedstuffs for ruminant animals: Part II: In situ ruminal degradability of crude protein
The data has shown that for the majority of feeds examined in this study, the different samples of any one feed are not equal in nutritive value and it is necessary to screen feeds for nutritivevalue before using them in ration formulation systems. Expand
