Ruminal degradation of pomegranate pomace using nylon bags technique

Behrouz Ebrahimi, Akbar Taghizadeh and Yousef Mehmannavaz

This study was carried out to determine of nutritive value of Pomegranate Pomace using in situ technique. In this study two fistulated wetheres (38±1.5 kg) were used in in situ method. Ruminal DM and CP disappearances were measured 0,2,4,6,8,12,16,24,36,48,72 and 96 h. Dry matter degradabilities of treated pomegranate pomace at 8 to 96 h, were larger than untreated pomegranate pomace, that showed significant differences (p<0.05). Crude protein degradabilities of treated pomegranate pomace at 96 h was 62.38 % that showed significant differences (p<0.05). Pomegranate pomace can used largely as a ruminant feeds.
