Fourrage Doulière has been a pioneer of this type of harvest since the early 2000s. The growing area is spread over the high and low lands of the Camargue. Compared to other cereal straws, harvesting rice straw requires greater care in selecting varieties, respecting the height of the cut, and choosing the land. If these criteria are strictly respected and followed, it proves to be a product of excellent quality
In rice-producing countries, this straw is a dietary staple for dairy cows, and particularly buffalo. It is mixed with green forage and concentrates. Rice straw harvested at 85% dry matter is as bulky as other cereal straws. Its use as a food source should be combined with other types of feed. The advantage of rice straw is its strong and rich fiber content as a mixed ration: compared to wheat straw alone, a mix of half rice straw and half wheat straw offers 20% more crude protein (4.65% of dry matter compared to 3.89%).
Rice straw with 0.51 FU offers 40% more fodder units than wheat straw (0.35 FU). Fourrage Doulière has been a pioneer of this type of harvest since the early 2000s.
Defiberized rice straw:
Can be used for bedding: thanks to this treatment, the product is 4 times more absorbent than standard straw. Due to its flexibility and high absorption capacity, it reduces cargo loads, storage, and handling. Defiberized straw can be used to supplement diets that are too low in cellulose or too wet for ruminants. The defiberization facilitates transit.
