Amino acid contents and intestinal digestibility of lucerne in ruminants as influenced by growth stage
|Vědecké publikace impaktované
Lucerne is the main forage crop for ruminants. However, its protein value might be reduced by nitrogen losses that occur during extensive rumen degradation, and, likewise, the protein value of forages are related to the stage of maturity (growth stage).A preliminary study was conducted to evaluate these influences in lucerne (var. Palava) grown in the CR. From this study, it can be concluded that, although limited in the sample size, the amino acid contents and intestinal digestibility are influenced by growth stage, even over a period as short as 30 days. However, these parameters cannot be treated as a constant, but have to be established for each growth stage in further studies.
