Abstract:

This research has been conducted to evaluate nutritional value, digestibility and degradability of three rangeland species Dactylic glomereta, Onobrychis sativa and Setaria galauca through chemical and in situ methods. The experiment conducted based on Randomized Complete Design with three fistulated sheep in 3 replications and obtained data were analyzed by software SAS and Neway. Specifications such as Crude Protein (CP), Neutral Detergent Fiber (NDF), Acid Detergent Fiber (ADF), Ether Extract (EE), Ash, Crude Fiber (CF), NFC (Non Fiber Carbohydrate), Nitrogen Free Extract (NFE) and organic material (OM) were determined in chemical method and degradation of dry matter and protein were determined at times 0, 4, 8, 16, 24, 48, 72 and 96 through in situ method for the three species. O. sativa showed the most amount of crude protein (23.95%) and the least amount of ADF. Also, S. galauca showed the least amount of protein (7.95%) and the most amount of ADF (45.73%). Results of degradability in in-situ (nylon bags) method show that S. galauca has the least and O. sativa has the most degradability of dry matter and protein. Results also show that O. sativa and D. glomereta have the capability of being applied as livestock food and S. galauca could be applied aslivestock food in combination with suitable species of legumes.
