Abstract:

The present study was conducted to assess the effect of feeding farm Sugarcane bagasse (FSCB) fortified with cellulase and hemicellulase enzymes on intake, ADG and digestibility in Mandya sheep fed with 3% urea treated finger millet (Eleucine coracona) straw as basal diet. Eighteen Mandya sheep (male lambs 6-9 month age) were selected and divided into three groups of six animals in each treatment. The trial lasted for 12 weeks. The sheep of T-1 group were fed with 3% urea treated finger millet straw and concentrated feed mixture (CFM) considered as control group. In T-2 group 50% of finger millet straw was replaced with 0.5% cellulase and hemicellulase treated FSCB. In T-3 group 75% of Finger millet straw was replaced with 0.5% cellulase and hemicellulase treated FSCB. The mean roughage DMI was 338.15, 213.16 and 191.74 g/d in T-1, T-2 and T-3 groups, respectively. The DMI varied significantly (P<.0001) between the groups. ADG was 77.14, 51.91 and 55.67g/d for T-1, T-2 and T-3 groups, respectively which was statistically non-significant. The digestibility of different nutrients varied non-significantly among the groups. Results of this study indicate that, even though supplementation of fibrolytic enzyme failed to improve the DMI of FSCB, the growth rate was not affected. This suggests that the urea treated bagasse with little supplementary feed can become a source of alternative roughage. Further study should focus on supplementation of fibrolytic enzymes with urea treatment at effective activity level to promote optimum growth performance and nutrient utilization in sheep.
