Abstract

An investigation has been conducted to examine the ratios of inoculums made of buffalo faeces def-ecated and buffer (artificial saliva) on the analysis of in-vitro digestibility of dry matter and organic matter of rice straw, corn forage, elephant grass, pangola grass, and peanut straw, respectively. The ratios between feces to buffer provided were 1:4, 1:2, 2:3, 2:1, and 1:5. Rumen inoculums were obtained from two mature female rumen-fistulated buffaloes maintaining with mixed ration of 70% elephant grass and 30% concen-trates fed ad libitum (3% dry matter requirements to body weight). Rumen fluid was collected before morning feeding. After 10-days acclimatization, the specified data were collected. The results showed that inoculums ratios of 1 :2 were significantly affected the in-vitro digestibility of forages tested. The efficacity of this test was 95%. Therefore, faeces and buffer ratios were potential to be used for inoculums for in-vitro feed digestibility assay during 48 hours incubation period.
