Abstract

The experiment was conducted to study the impact of biomass combinations and rumen liquor as a fermenting agent on the yield of in vitro digestibility. The experiment was laid out in completely randomized design having four treatments and three replications. Two biomass combinations that are Berseem, 50% Berseem + 50% Mott grass and two levels of fermenting agent that is 1% rumen and control were used. Biomass combination and the fermenting agent showed a significant (α ≤ 0.05) effect on In-vitro digestibility. The maximum in vitro digestibility(%CP 5, %dry matter digestibility 14 and %starch equivalent 18) were recorded in the treatment having a combination of Berseem, Mott grass and rumen liquor while the minimum In-vitro digestibility (%CP 5-9, % dry matter digestibility 7-8 and %starch equivalent 16-18)was recorded for Berseem used only as a biomass. It was concluded that a mixture of Berseem, Mott grass and rumen liquor give high in vitro digestible silage if used as agents for silage preparation in a silo.
