# Feed Analysis Values

1074 Words 4 Pages
The values that arise from the feed analysis were: the dry matter, crude protein, acid detergent fibre, neutral detergent fibre, pH level and ash. Specifically, the value for the dry matter is the corrected value in order to allow for acids, volatile acids and other components that lost on oven drying. The crude protein which is determined from the total nitrogen of silage is 88.33 (g/kg DM). The value of the acid detergent fibre which is a measurement of lingin, cellulose and lignified nitrogen is 306.79 (g/kg DM). The neutral detergent fibre of the silage was 552.40(g/kg DM) and is an indicator of forage intake potential which declines as NDF value increases. The pH value of the silage is 3.91 and its an indicator of the acid in the silage. …show more content…
Specifically, the value for digestible organic matter calculated from the equation:
DOMD(g/kg DM)=(983.1-(1.04*corrected ADF)) and the value that arise in our occasion was 664.03 (g/kg DM). The value of metabolisable energy that emerged from the following equation: ME content (Mj/kg DM)= (0.01494*DOMD) + (0.00732*CP)-0.56 had a value of 10.4 (MJ/kg DM). Metabolisable energy is one of the most important measure related with the energy content of silage when that fed to ruminant livestock, and represents the amount of energy that is available to the animal after accounting for losses in digestion, urine and gases. And the last one is the metabolisability ratio (qm) of the silage which has a value of 0.58 and was calculated by using the following equation: qm=(-0.000796*corrected ADF)+0.827
Its main purpose is to show if there is sufficient protein available for the microorganisms of the rumen. However crude protein does not indicate anything about the quality of protein within a feed which have a significant effect on animal. The optimal value of crude protein in a feed varies between 100-200 (g/kg DM). The value that arise in our occasion which is 88.83 (g/kg DM) is quite lower than the targeted values that indicates that the feed that was examined has an issue in terms of the protein that is available for the microorganisms of the rumen. Low protein can be cause by nitrogen losses due to rain, weed competition and improper harvesting and storage(Weiss., et al

• ## Analysis Of Meta-Methyl Nitrobenzoate

Also, their Rf values indicate that the recrystallized solute moved less distance compare to the crude product and started material. This suggests that the product made was Meta-Methyl nitrobenzoate even if it has little different melting point from the literature melting point which is 7880°C. Conclusion/Discussion: During the electrophilic aromatic substitution reaction between methyl benzoate and a nitrating solution of sulfuric and nitric acids, the Meta-Methyl nitrobenzoate product was obtained based on the product melting point range. Percent yield of the crude 56.42% and the percent yield of the recrystallized product was 52.59%. This would indicate that during the recrystallization there was a reduction in the percentage yield of the production.…

• ## Thin Layer Chromatography Extraction

Using the equations and the numbers on Table 1 found in the data section, the Rf value for the isolated biphenyl was 0.66, the weight was 0.107 g, and recovery percentage was 35.7%. The pH level of the aqueous solvent was then manipulated from a base (sodium benzoate) back into an acid (benzoic acid), by adding HCl. The Rf value for benzoic acid was 0.115, the weight was 0.092 g and the recovery percentage was 30.7%. Using the equation…

• ## Moistate Analysis: Proximate Analysis Of Mayonnaise

3.2.4.1 Proximate Analysis Proximate analysis is done to determine the moisture content, total ash, crude fat, crude protein, crude fiber and total carbohydrate of each mayonnaise samples with different grape seed extract percentages. 3.2.4.1.1 Moisture Content The moisture contents of mayonnaise samples with different grape seed extract percentages are determined by air oven drying according to the official AOAC method 930.15 (2003) with a slight modification (Babajide & Olatunde, 2010). First, dry the crucible with its lid in an air oven for 30 minutes at 100 °C and then leave to cool in the desiccator. Storing the crucible in the desiccator and handling the crucible with forceps are important steps to prevent obtaining the moisture from…

• ## The Importance Of Turbidity And Atomic Spectroscopy

Hardness is measured by titration method where EDTA (0.1M standard sample) is used as titrant and erichrome black T is used as an indicator. Hardness of water is calculated as mg equivalent of CaCO3. water is called soft until 60mg/l of hardness moderately hard on 60-120 mg/l range and had in 120-180mg/l range [7]. Ammonia: - Ammonia is produced when nitrogenous organic matter is destroyed by microbiological activity. Agricultural waste or waste from fertilizer industries containing nitrogen or free ammonia goes into the water reserves by the surface…

• ## Effects Of Heat Stress On Plants

Total free amino acid was calculated by plotting standard glycine. Catalase Catalase activity was measured by the method of Aebi, 1974[12]. 0.1 ml supernatant was addedtocuvette containing 1.9 ml of 50 mM phosphate buffer (pH 7.0). Reaction was started by the addition of 1.0 ml of freshly prepared 30 mM H2O2. The rate of decomposition of H2O2 was measured spectrophotometrically from changes in absorbance at 240 nm.…

• ## Sulphamic Acid Case Study

The ammonium bisulphate is separated by the filtration in form of the ammonium sulphate. So it is neutralization of crystallization of the sulphamic acid. The manufacture of sulphamic acid from the reactants urea, sulphuric acid, and SO3 and heated at about 75º C to 85º C. CO (NH2)2 + H2SO4 + SO3 → 2NH2SO3H + CO2 When the sulphur trioxide is reacting with the ammonia, contain amidosulfonic acid and imido-disulfonic acid is obtained. From the resulting solution sulphamic acid precipitates in high give up. (Leclercq, P. & Luternauer, J.…

• ## Wetlands Essay

A higher level of nitrates not only causes eutrophication but also can make people ill if ingested . A healthy range for nitrates is no more than 1 mg/L. Like nitrates, a small amount of phosphates (0.1 mg/L) is necessary for living organism and water. In the wetlands the only type of phosphate concentrate recorded were inorganic forms typically found in fertilizer . When these two acids exceed the satisfactory range then pH levels decrease.…

• ## Protein Casein Experiment

For 5% acetic acid, casein will be precipitated the most, as the concentration of pH is the lowest, the pH of milk will be lower closely to pH 4.6 from pH 6.6. It is because addition acid adds to the milk, it will decrease the pH of casein, and neutral casein will precipitate. [1] [2] For 10% acetic acid, less casein will be precipitated, as the concentration of pH is higher, the pH of milk will be lower than pH 4.6 from pH 6.6. It is because more acid adds to the milk; it will decrease the pH of casein more, and less neutral casein will precipitate as few of casein will precipitate and dissolve again. [1] [2] For 15% acetic acid, less casein will be precipitated, as the concentration of pH is higher, the pH of milk will be lower than pH 4.6 from pH 6.6.…
