Abstract

This study aims to determine the digestibility value and degradation rate of various types of swamp grass in Sacco in local Pampangan buffalo in South Sumatra. The design used in the study was a completely randomized design consisting of 6 treatments and three replications. The treatments tested were six types of swamp grass which were then coded for each treatment as follows: Hymenachne Acutigluma (HA1), Hymenachne Amplexicaulis (HA2), Oryza Rufipogon (OR), Rhynchospora Corymbose (RC), Eleocharis Dulcis (ED) and Leersia Hexandra (LH). The observed variables in this study were degradation rate and Analysis of fiber fraction content in each grass includes Neutral Detergent Fiber (NDF), Acid Detergent Fiber (ADF), Hemicellulose and Cellulose. The results showed that ED grass had the highest total digestibility value for each fiber fraction variable. The rate of degradation shows an interesting pattern where Overall, the value of fractions a, b and c for each observation parameter showed a significant difference (P<0.05). Based on this study, it can be concluded that ED grass has the best fiber digestibility than other types of swamp grass and is very potential for buffalo livestock due to its high degradation rate.
