ABSTRACT:
The objectives of this study were to determine the magnitude of differences among oat varieties (new super-genotype vs normal) of in terms of detailed chemical composition and in situ degradation kinetics of nutrient components for ruminants. Six oat samples comprised of 3 cultivars (CDC Dancer, Derby and CDC SO-I) grown over two years (2005, 2006) were obtained from the Crop Development Centre. The results show different chemical and nutritive characteristics among oat varieties. The in situ trial revealed that nutrient disappearance of DM, CP and starch followed the same trend. Further study is on modeling nutrient supply (protein and energy).
