There are no significant differences in IVDMD
and IVNDFD among all tested treatments which were as similar as de Jesus Ferreira et al.
815 (ARC ), where GE is gross energy (MJ/kg) and IVDMD
is in vitro dry matter digestibility.

The results obtained for the IVDMD
of the rations used increased as the level of FLP increased (Figure 1), until obtaining a value of 68.
The first four generations had only been bred to improve IVDMD
We used MANOVA followed by ANOVA to test for differences in forage quality, from IVDMD
, crude protein and Van Soest analyses, among forage categories and treatments.
DOM = digestible organic matter (%); IVDMD
= in vitro dry matter digestibility (%).
On the other hand, the presence of alkaloids in species with high PC and moderate IVDMD
contents such as A.
The objectives of this study were to: (i) estimate the realized direct response from one cycle of bidirectional phenotypic selection for NDSF concentration, (ii) evaluate association of NDSF concentration with other forage quality traits, and (iii) determine the impact of selection for NDSF concentration on IVDMD
Partial correlation coefficients, from that analysis of forage quality with MANOVA (Table 1), indicated a weak positive relationship between N and IVDMD
(r = 0.
, corrected for percentage of dry matter, could then be calculated as:
Xing et al and Ebrahimi et al [17,25] reported that addition of cellulase enzyme and cellulase plus LAB resulted in a decrease of pH, increase in both lactic acid content and IVDMD
in sorghum straw and oil palm frond.
