Title: Improving the nutritive value of low quality roughage for ruminants by ensiling with citrus pulp and poultry litter
Author: Migwi, Perminus K.
Issue Date: 1997
School/Discipline: Dept. of Animal Science
Abstract: This study evaluates quality of fermentation of the silage and also its nutritive value to ruminants on the basis of "in vitro" and "in sacco" digestability. Animal response to the silage is also evaluated in an "in vivo" digestability and nitrogen balance trial with Australian Merino sheep. The objective of this thesis is to investigate the opportunities for utilising citrus pulp and poultry litter to improve the nutritive value of wheat straw
