Title: Evaluation of Sugarcane Bagasse Treated by Urea as Energy Source(Iso-coloric and Iso –nutrogenic) in Total mix Ration
Author: Mohammed, Reem Abdullah Ismail
Abstract: To address problems associated with poverty and food shortage, scientists investigated alternative food sources, evaluated present land use and utilization of food, thus feeding grains to ruminants is questioned because man and monogastric can utilize grains directly. On the other hand ruminants are characterized by their ability to convert low quality roughage to high nutritive products, which are useful to man e.g (meat, milk, natural fibers, leather and manure) (Gerfenbach and Dugmore., 2004). Agricultural by-products such as bagasse have enough potential to be used as non conventional roughage for animal feed in Sudan, particularly when forages are in short supply. Bagasse is the main byproduct of sugarcane industry; it contains 60 to 70% carbohydrate, mostly in the form of polysaccharides and is a potential source of dietary energy for animals. The major limitation of bagasse as feed is its low digestibility which is due to association of lignin with cellulose and hemicelluloses (Atta Elmnan et al., 2009).
