Abstract:
The present study was conducted to evaluate detailed chemical composition (% DM), Cornell Net Carbohydrate and Protein system (CNCPS) proteins fractions (% CP) and to determine metabolizable energy (ME) and metabilazable protein (MP) value of various feed ingredients commonly used in ruminant nutrition under Indian field conditions. Total twelve different feed ingredients were taken and analysed for proximate composition, detergent analysis (cell wall fractions) and CNCPS protein fractions. Results of present study revealed that ME content was highest in full fat soya (17.32 MJ/Kg) while it was found quite similar for maize (8.24 MJ/Kg DM) and sorghum fodders (7.87 MJ/Kg DM). Quickly degradable protein fraction was found to be highest in mustard oil cake (24.65 %), while least degradable protein fraction (% CP) was estimated highest in wheat straw as 25.78. MP content of GNC (29.21) was found highest among all feeds. It can be concluded that it can be possible to determine CNCP protein fraction can be to determine the RDP and UDP fractions as well as MP values of feed and fodder.
