Progeny 3 showed the highest IVOMD
values, followed by progenies 1 and 2, respectively.
4], cellulose, and IVOMD
for all four methods, ranged from 2 to 4 at 0.
Addition of phenols reduced IVOMD
for both birch twigs and hay, but differences between seasons were only apparent at the highest concentration (F = 134.
1]) had significantly higher IVOMD
as compared with plots fertilized with SCM (371 g [kg.
(In vitro organic matter digestibility) was calculated according to the following formulas: IVOMD
(%) = [(initial OM input - (Residue - Blank) / initial OM input) x100].
Besides the changes in canopy structure mentioned above, the decreases in the percentages of CP and IVOMD
, from the first to the second period, could be explained by the aging of the forage plant.
The IVDMD and IVOMD
of WDG, DDG, and DDGS are shown in Table 4 and 5, respectively.
Accordingly, among all treatments, CAm and CPh treatments improved IVDMD and IVOMD
(p < 0.
This herbage was analyzed for CP by a macro-Kjeldahl technique and for IVOMD
by a modified two-stage procedure (Moore and Mott, 1974).
content was determined according to the method of Tilley and Terry (1963), as modified by Engels and Van der Merwe (1967).
in samples was determined a DaisyII incubator (ANKOM Technology Macedon New York USA) using the technique described by Adesogan (2005).
