Use of Urea Treated Crop Residue in Ruminant Feed
Keywords:Dry seasons, Treatment, Crop residue, Crop improvement
Large amounts of crop residues are produced annually globally which are hitherto rendered waste. Various farm wastes i.e. crop residue have been effectively, efficiently and economically employed in form of all-inclusive diets. This study summarizes the importance of this waste to ruminant animals especially in developing nations where there is major feeding requirements constraint mostly during the dry seasons of the year. The all-inclusiveness of these residues are created by treating and fortifying these wastes with technologies highlighted in this review. The development and improvement of the quality of this fibrous crop residue is the main thrust of this study through nutrient balancing and amend major nutritional flaws inherent in them. Few practical ways were mentioned and described, others ways to harvest more gains from crop residues were highlighted.
