INSACCO (NYLON BAG)

Functions: 
Research
Location: 
Department of Animal Production
Picture: 

This is intra ruminal incubation of samples using a cloth bag or nylon bag of specific pore size of about 30 microns. The cloth bags are inserted into a rumen through a fistula. This method is preferred by those who wish to avoid the details of anaerobic technique. Digestion utilizing cloth bags of controlled pore size can be very useful in measuring in vivo rates of digestion.

TWO STAGE INVITRO DM DIGESTION

Functions: 
Research
Location: 
Department of Animal Production
Picture: 

A simple technique for the determination of dry organic matter digestibility of forage feed samples. It involves two stages of incubation first with rumen liquor and then with acid pepsin. This technique has been used for the study of digestibility of plants breeders material, of the leaf and stem fractions of herbage and of herbage consumed by animals

VANSOEST FIBRE ANALYSIS (DETERGENT SYSTEM)

Functions: 
Research
Location: 
Department of Animal Production
Picture: 

The concept behind the detergent fiber analysis is that plant cells can be divided into less digestible cell walls (hemicelluloses, cellulose, and lignin) and mostly digestible cell contents (starch and sugars ). The two components are successfully separated by use of two detergents, a neutral detergent and acid detergent solutions
