Abstract

With the goal of nutritionally assess through trials of Digestibility in vitrodigestibility (Tilley and Terry) in Mulberry (Morus nigra)and Inga (Inga spp) plants for a possible use in feeding ruminants, the present research work was carried out at the National University of Asunción, in the Department of Animal Nutrition and Feeding of the School of Veterinary Sciences, San Lorenzo, Paraguay. In order to do so, samples of different parts of Mulberry (Morus nigra) e Inga (Inga spp) from the University Campus site. Samples taken were processed by five treatments, T1: Mulberry leaves; T2: Inga leaves; T3: Mulberry branches and leaves; T4: Inga branches and leaves; T5: Inga fruits. Each one of the treatments were dried in forced air drying kiln at 65°C, ground and later subject to analysis in order to determine their chemical composition (AOAC, 2000) and the in vitro digestibility coefficients of the Dry Matter (IVDMD) and Organic Matter (IVOMD) as per Tilley and Terry (1963). IVDMD values were higher for T3 (84.72%) followed by T1 (60.63%); T5 (48.6%); T2 (39.33%) and lastly T4 (17.77%); even though the difference was not statistically significant between T5 and T2 and T1. The same tendency was observed for IVOMD values, although in this case there were significant differences for all treatments (T3: 84.98%; T1: 69.77%; T5: 53.4%; T2: 29.92% and T4: 21.93%).
