Studies were conducted on two maize stovers types (ST) harvested at grain milk (MM) or dry (MD) stages and mixed with graded ratios (20, 40, 60, 80%) of protein supplements (PS) including Lucerne hay (LH), Lespedeza hay (LPZ) and Sunflower oil cake (SFC). Automated in vitro gas production technique (IVGPT) was used. The crude protein (CP) content of LH, LPZ and SFC were 199, 73 and 391 g/kg DM, respectively. The corresponding NDF values were 355, 525 and 324 g/kg DM. The degradability was high… CONTINUE READING
