A Study on the Performance of Bulls Fed by Sugarcane

  • Nuñez Jaramillo


There is a long practice in the feeding of sugarcane to all classes of livestock, especially for cattle during the dry season when availability of conventional forage resources is scarce. Nevertheless, the techniques used have been mostly rudimentary and there has been little appreciation of the critical role of supplements as a means of improving the efficiency of utilization of the sugarcane plant as animal feed. This research paper studies the performance of bulls which are fed by sugarcane.
