It was concluded that at 5% rumen passage rate, coconut meal
and corn gluten meal showed least degradability and therefore can be incorporated in growing and lactating ruminant rations for higher bypass protein value.
The formulations were categorized as high (corn gluten feed, soybean and perilla meal, corn), medium (corn gluten feed, rapeseed and coconut meal
, wheat) and low (corn gluten feed, palm kernel, distillers dried grains and barley).
I make a cow feed in my hammermill with 30 parts ground ear corn (with the husks), 2 parts cotton seed meal, 2 parts coconut meal
, and about 1 part mineral salt.
Methane emissions from corn gluten meal, rape seed meal, coconut meal
, cottonseed meal and corn cake were in range of 0.
The cereals and by-products were yellow corn, sorghum, hard wheat, broken rice, wheat bran, fine and gross defatted corn germ and bran, and rice polishing; the oilseeds and by-products were cotton seed and cotton meal, and soy, palm oil and coconut meals
