THE EFFECT OF FEEDING MUSHROOM WASTES ON SERUM MACROMINERALS OF GROWING SHEEP

Mushrooms belong to fungal groups that form characteristic fruiting bodies in which spores reside. They not only play an important role in the recycling of plant materials in an ecosystem  but also are  appreciated  as  good  sources  of  food  and  medicine  (1).  The  stalk  and  spent  mushroom substrates, is the leftover of wastes after different flushes of mushrooms have been harvested. This waste material can  be rich in microorganisms  and extra-cellular  enzymes and contain  relatively high  levels of  nitrogen,  potassium,  phosphorus,  calcium  and  trace  elements,  notably  iron and silicon, that may be used as animal feed (2). In the mushroom  industry in Malaysia,  mushroom stalk  (MS)  and  spent  mushroom  substrate  (SMS)  are  the  main  by  products.  This  study was conducted to investigate the effect of feeding mushroom  by products and substrate on the concentrations of some macro minerals in blood serum of growing sheep.
