Aplicación de diferentes niveles de subproductos del beneficiado de quinua (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) en la preparación de raciones para cuyes (Cavia porcellus L.) en crecimiento y engorde

Abstract

From quinua crop residue it is possible to obtain byproducts that can be used to feed small animals, especially guinea pigs. These byproducts can become an alternative feed to ameliorate food deficiencies generally present in the Altiplano. This study compared the effect of consumed quinua meal rations on guinea pig body weight increase and food and economic conversion. This project was developed in two phases: pre-experimental and experimental. In the first phase, genetic material appropriate for the project and the initial rations for consumption was acquired. The second phase included the experimental design where the treatments were developed. The study concluded that a diet of 30% of dry quinua residue completely substituted a diet of wheat meal. This study also presented information on a bactericidal effect of consumed quinua in the digestive tract, resulting in improved weight increase and feed conversion.

Abstract (Spanish)

En el proceso del beneficiado de la quinua se libera subproductos que ofrecen buenas posibilidades para el empleo en la alimentación de animales menores especialmente cuyes. Esta fuente puede ser una alternativa para suplir las deficiencias de alimentos que generalmente se presenta en el altiplano, por tanto se ha planteado el trabajo Aplicación de diferentes niveles de subproductos del beneficiado de quinua (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) en la preparación de raciones para cuyes (Cavia porcellus L.) en crecimiento y engorde. La investigación se ha conducido en el centro de Facilidades para la investigación "Letanías" dependiente del Instituto de Agricultura y Alimentación E. T. Benson de la Universidad Brigham Young.
