Determination of the Feed Value of Wheat Straw: Turkey, Siirt Province Case

Semih Acikbas, Mehmet Arif Ozyazici


In this research, it was aimed to determine the feed value of wheat straw commonly used in animal nutrition. For this purpose, a total of 25 wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) straw samples were collected from the wheat production areas in Siirt province in the Southeastern Anatolia region of Turkey. In the samples, acid detergent insoluble fiber (ADF) ratio, neutral detergent insoluble fiber (NDF) ratio, crude protein (HP) ratio, phosphorus (P), potassium (K), calcium (Ca) and magnesium (Mg) analyzes were performed. As a result of the research ADF, NDF, CP, P, K, Ca and Mg ratios of wheat straw dry matter ranged between 46.29-58.69%, 75.88-89.30%, 0.24-5.03%, 0.08-0.22%, 0.12-1.52%, 0.10-0.58%, and 0.02-0.27%, respectively. According to the results, it was found that the feed value of wheat straw was low.

Keywords: Triticum aestivum L., Crude protein, Phosphorus, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium.
