DIFFERENCES IN PROTEIN NUTRITION IN SWAMP BUFFALOES COMPARED TO YELLOW CATTLE



Buffalo Bulletin (December 2014) Vol.33 No.4
http://ibic.lib.ku.ac.th/e-bulletin/IBBU201404015.pdf

ABSTRACT
 The objective of this study is to contribute to the information on the requirement of non protein nitrogen in swamp buffalo. 
In the first experiment, the animals were daily fed rice straw and urea-molasses cakes (UMC). The amount of UMC the buffalo consumed on the first day was 16% of that consumed by the cattle. After 10 days the daily consumption increased in both types of animal, but buffaloes consumption was only 35% that of cattle. 
 In the second experiment, the rumen fluid NH3 was determined. The results show that NH3 concentration of buffaloes was significantly higher than that of yellow cattle (P<0.001). This proves that if the nitrogen stays longer in plasma, they should recycle to the rumen by rumen amiability function. 
 In the third experiment, four female cattle and four female buffaloes were used. The animal were daily fed 70 g dry matter per kg M0·75 by difference types of food as king grass, ensiled groundnut vice, ensiled maize leaves and stems and rice straw according to a Latin Square (4x4) design for each type of animal. The results show that feed intake and CP digest not significant difference, but allantoin excretion very low in urine of buffaloes (P<001) and rumen fluid NH3 are higher (P<0.001).  The results from this study may contribute to understanding of the mechanisms of physiological adaptation to efficient recycling of urea as well as PD in buffalo.
