The potential of using whole corn crop silage and rice straw as an alternative feed for the beef cattle based on the intake and growth performance were evaluated. Using randomised completely block design, nine adult Mafriwal cattle were blocked intro three groups and treated with three different forage diets supplemented with 20% pelleted palm kernel cake on dry matter basis. The treatments were 100% rice straw (RS), 100% corn silage (CS) and an equal mixture of rice straw and corn silage (MIX… Expand
Improving Rumen Fermentability and Fiber Fraction Digestion of Fermented Rice Straw with A Cattle Feed Supplement and A Concentrate
Original Research Article This study aimed to obtain the best ration with the use of fermented rice straw (RF) as a basal feed for cattle farms. The RF was made by fermenting rice straw usingExpand

Feed intake, growth performance and digestibility in goats fed whole corn plant silage and Napier grass
It can be concluded that high proportion of corn silage to grass diets had resulted in increases in feed intake and growth performance of goats and the highest growth performance was observed in animals that were fed with T5 diets. Expand
Effects of replacing grass silage with maize silages differing in inclusion level and maturity on the performance, meat quality and concentrate-sparing effect of beef cattle.
It is concluded that the response, in animal performance, including maize silage is dependent on the stage of maturity and level of inclusion in the diet. Expand
Utilization of oil palm frond - based diets for beef and dairy production in Malaysia.
Good quality OPF silage can be produced without using any additive and the significant improvement on the rate of growth and milk yield were shown and long-term feeding of OPF based feeds have been shown to produce good quality carcasses, and the meat is safe for consumption. Expand
Effects of maize maturity at harvest and dietary proportion of maize silage on intake and performance of growing/finishing bulls
The effect of whole-crop maize maturity at harvest and the proportion of maize-silage in diets of finishing bulls, on feed intake and performance is evaluated. Expand
Feed intake and growth performance of goats supplemented with soy waste
The objective of this work was to evaluate the effects of supplemental feeding of soy waste on the feed intake and growth rate of goats. Twenty male crossbred (Boer x local) goats were assigned toExpand
