Digestibilidade aparente de dietas contendo diferentes proporções de resíduo industrial de tomate


Sixteen lambs fed with 0%, 15%, 30% or 45% of tomato by product (TBP) in the diet were used in order to evaluate the intake (I) and apparent digestibility (AD) of dry matter (DM), organic matter (OM), crude protein (CP), neutral detergent fiber (NDF) and acid detergent fi-ber (ADF) in a randomized design. There were no diffe-rences in DM-I related to live weight (3,6%) and metabo-lic weight (91,7g/kg0,75) among the treatments. The 30% TBP diet showed higher OM-AD. It was found a linear effect for ADF-I and a quadratic response for NDF-I. The regression analysis revealed a negative effect of TBP in a CP-AD. For the others parameters there were no differen-ces among treatments. It was concluded that the TBP has good AD of all analyzed fractions and that proportions up to 45% TBP in lamb’s diet do not reduce the intake, howe-ver higher digestibility was found with 30% of inclusion.
