ABSTRACT:
The aim of the study was to determine the effect of two live yeast cultures (LY1 and LY2) and yeast metabolites (YM) on dry matter degradability. Dry matter degradability of maize grain, cellulose and wheat straw was determined in vitro using a DaisyII incubator (ANKOM Technology). A statistically significant increase (P<0.05) was observed in dry matter degradation of maize grain after the application of yeast, although no such effect was seen on the degradation of wheat straw. After incubation of cellulose for 12 and 14 h, the highest increase in degradability was observed after application of LY2. Yeast metabolites (YM) significantly improved (P<0.05) the degradability of cellulose after 6 h incubation.
