1977) found that cottonseed hulls were more readily consumed (3.
2 g/kg DM), close to that of different varieties of cottonseed hulls (230 to 303 g/kg DM) reported in the literature (Fadel, 1999; Robinson et al.
The concentrate group includes linted whole cottonseed, dried distillers grains and dried brewers grains, whereas the forage group includes, beet pulp, soy hulls, cottonseed hulls and others.
However, a negative interaction was noted when a combination of cottonseed hulls and cotton long linter were fed to ruminants (Coppock et al.
In summary, the products of delinted cottonseed hulls can be defined as roughage with a low crude protein and very high fibre content, when compared to feeds consisting of conventional linted cottonseed hulls.
The model included the fixed effects of cottonseed hull diets (CH21, CH27, and CH33), aging time (24 hours, 3, 7, and 14 aging days), and their interaction by applying the following Equation 1:
ij] = the observed value of the i aging time group effect and j cottonseed hull diets,
j] = interaction between aging time group and cottonseed hull diets, and
4%) contents within the LM of bulls that were fed with cottonseed hull diets agreed with the characteristics expected of young bulls (Serra et al.
The increases in cottonseed hull within diets did not affect the collagen content within LM.
2) Average daily roughage intake contained the total daily intake of alfalfa and cottonseed hulls
, and the average daily intake of alfalfa were 165, 169, 162 g/d in CON, LY, MO group respectively; daily intake of cottonseed hulls
were 549, 592, 477 g/d in CON, LY, MO group respectively.
Aged sawdust and cottonseed hulls
may be the main basal ingredients.
