Diurnal ingestive Behavior of beef cattle on grass hybrid Brachiaria Mulato II

For cattle production under grazing conditions, the system characteristic is the multiplicity of elements that interact to make meaningful changes in the eating habits of cattle. This study evaluated diurnal behavior and their productive performance. Grazing cattle were fed with hybrid Brachiaria cv...

description For cattle production under grazing conditions, the system characteristic is the multiplicity of elements that interact to make meaningful changes in the eating habits of cattle. This study evaluated diurnal behavior and their productive performance. Grazing cattle were fed with hybrid Brachiaria cv. Mulato II. This study was conducted in a 107 days period between July and October 2010 at Corpoica Turipaná Research Center, (Cereté, Colombia). 72 cebú cattle, with an average initial weight of 314 ± 29 kg were used on a 12 hectares field planted with hybrid Brachiaria cv. Mulato II. Two experimental trials were implemented: the first one, using a randomized block design with two replicates using three treatment of 5, 6 and 7 animals/ha. Weight gaining and quality of the fodder were evaluated. The second trial using a randomized block design with three treatments for nine experimental units, monitored daily feeding habits. The quality of the fodder didn’t show any significant difference (P > 0.05), but the time the cattle spent grazing and ruminating while laying down and moving regularly, showed differences (P < 0.05). The weight gaining during the different treatments of daily feeding showed a significant difference: (P > 0.001). The variables of feeding behavior evaluated, and the weight gaining process were highly influenced by the animal performance.

La producción de bovinos en pastoreo se caracteriza por la múltiple interacción de variables, las cuales pueden afectar la conducta ingestiva de los bovinos. El objetivo de este estudio fue evaluar el comportamiento ingestivo diurno y el rendimiento productivo de novillos de engorde en pradera del Brachiaria híbrido cv. Mulato II. La investigación duró 107 días, entre julio y octubre de 2010, en el Centro de Investigación Turipaná de Corpoica en Cereté, Colombia. Se utilizaron 72 bovinos de ceba, de raza cebú comercial con peso promedio de 314 ± 29 kg, los cuales pastorearon en un área de 12 hectáreas establecidas con Brachiaria híbrido cv. Mulato II. Se realizaron dos diseños experimentales: el primero, diseño de bloques completos al azar con submuestreo, conformado por tres tratamientos, 5, 6 y 7 animales/ha y dos repeticiones, para analizar la producción, calidad del forraje y ganancia diaria de peso; el segundo, un diseño de bloques completos al azar con tres tratamientos y tres repeticiones, correspondientes a nueve unidades experimentales, para el análisis de las variables de comportamiento ingestivo. La disponibilidad de forraje no presentó diferencia significativa (P > 0,05); en cambio, en las actividades de pastoreo, rumia total, rumia echado y rumia parado, el análisis detectó diferencias significativas (P < 0,05); para la ganancia diaria de peso, el análisis mostró diferencia altamente significativa (P < 0,01) en los diferentes tratamientos. Las variables de comportamiento ingestivo evaluadas y la ganancia diaria de peso vivo fueron influenciadas por la carga animal. 2019-08-09T19:30:08Z 2019-08-09T19:30:08Z 2015 info:eu-repo/semantics/article info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion http://revistacta.agrosavia.co/index.php/revista/article/view/393 10.21930/rcta.vol15_num1_art:393 http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12324/35183 reponame:Biblioteca Digital Agropecuaria de Colombia repourl:https://repository.agrosavia.co instname:Corporación colombiana de investigación agropecuaria AGROSAVIA spa http://revistacta.agrosavia.co/index.php/revista/article/view/393/310 application/pdf Corporación Colombiana de Investigación Agropecuaria (Agrosavia) Ciencia y Tecnología Agropecuaria; Vol 15 No 1 (2014); 15-23 Ciencia y Tecnología Agropecuaria; Vol. 15 Núm. 1 (2014); 15-23 revista Corpoica Ciência e Tecnologia Agropecuária; v. 15 n. 1 (2014); 15-23 2500-5308 0122-8706 10.21930/rcta.vol15-num1
