This article describes the scientific and production experience conducted in the Druzhba LLC, of the Buinsky district of the Republic of Tatarstan. The purpose of the scientific and production experiment is to study the effect of extruded feed, with the preliminary germination of rapeseed in a 0.05 % nicotinic acid solution, on the cicatricial digestion of calves and dairy cows. During the experiment, it is found that feeding calves and dairy cows with extruded feed with preliminary germination of rapeseed in a 0.05 % nicotinic acid solution had a positive effect on cicatricial digestion, contributing to an increase in ammonia to 8.7 and 7.9 %, acetic acid – 12, 6 and 11.5 % and propionic – 13.4 and 12.6 % acids, with a decrease in butyric acid – 12.8 and 10.4 %, an increase in the total microbial number – 8 4.0 and 16.3 %, in including cellulolytic bacteria – 11.6 and 14.3 %, ciliates – 13.4 and 12.9 %, as well as the enzymatic activity of cicatricial microflora, respectively accordingly, in comparison with the control and the group where the grain feed is subjected to only one extrusion. Thus, the use of extruded feed with pre-germinated rapeseed in feeding calves and dairy cows improved the underlying indices of cicatricial digestion compared with the control group of animals fed with non-extruded feed and the group of animals fed with extruded feed.
