Abstract: SUMMARY The aim of this study was to evaluate the use of silages of different sorghum cultivars through digestibility and nutrient intake and performance of sheep. The experiment was conducted at the Pendência Experimental Station, of the State Company for Agricultural Research of Paraíba S.A. For the experiment, thirty-five rams were used, without defined breed, with average live weight of 17.7 kg, distributed in a completely randomized block design, with five diets and seven replicates to determine intake an… Show more

“…We hypothesize that the variety of sorghum used will influence the chemical quality and nutrient value of sorghum silage. The evaluation of different cultivars of sorghum in silage form in relation to different purposes, such as grain, bioethanol production, forage, or dualpurpose, is required (Pinho et al, 2017). Previous studies have reported that the different sorghum varieties could lead to different product quality in the ensiling process ( Junior et al, 2015;Neves et al, 2015;Yucel and Erkan, 2020).…”
