Pangolagrass ( Oigitaria decumbens) and stargrass ( Cynodon nlemfuensis) harvested at 30 , 45, and 60 days and made in to hay, were fed to four castrated male ruminants (goats and steers) in ind ividual digestion stalls. The grasses were fe rt il ized at the rate of 4,480 kg / ha/yr with 15-5-10, harvested, sun-dried for 2 days and cut in 3to 6-cm pieces. Each experimental period lasted 21 days, divided into a 14-day preliminary feed ing period and a 7-day co llect ion period . Each hay was… CONTINUE READING
