Use of cow faeces at different times after being voided as a source of micro-organisms for in vitro digestion of forages
S. Akhter, E. Owen, M. M. Hossain
Experiments were conducted to determine the effect of time intervals between collecting and use of cattle faeces as a source of micro-organisms in in vitro digestibility assays of forages. The results suggested that temperature conservation capacity by faeces depended on the size of the sample. There was no significant difference(p>0.05) between the first(T1 or 08:30 h) and second using time(T2 or 10:30 h). In vitro organic matter digestibility was significantly lower when faeces was used 5 h(T3 or 13:30 h) after collection. Owever, the organic matter digestibility determined at the second using time(T2) and third using time(T3) were highly correlated(R2 = 0.99) with the first using time. It was concluded that faeces can be used as a source of microorganisms for in vitro digestibility assays of forages even 5 h after being voided.
