The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of supplementation of alfalfa silage with Lactobacillus buchneri additive, orange pulp and molasses on dry matter, crude protein and organic matter degradability by nylon bags. The treatments included: alfalfa silage (control treatment), alfalfa silage processed with bacterial additive, 3×108 cfu/g, alfalfa and orange pulp silage, alfalfa and orange pulp silage processed with bacterial additive (3×108 cfu/g), alfalfa silage processed with 5% molasses, and alfalfa silage processed with 5% molasses and bacterial additive 3×108 cfu/g. The alfalfa was harvested at flowering stage and after 24 hours, it was ensiled with orange pulp and Lalsil with a weight ratio of 2100 g of alfalfa and 760 g of orange pulp for 90 days. After opening the silos in order to investigate the dry matter, crude protein and organic matter degradability of silage at 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 48, 72, 96 and 120 hours, two adult fistulated male sheep be used. Data were analyzed in a completely randomized design with four replications. By adding molasses and bacterial additive to alfalfa, the in situ dry matter disappearance significantly increased (p<0.05). In general, it can be concluded that the bacterial additive, molasses and orange pulp alone and in combination produced a better fermented silage and the use of a carbohydrate source such as molasses or orange pulp as useful resources for bacterial populations and bacterial additives in the preparation of high quality silage from alfalfa, due to the deficiencies of this valuable plant, is essential.
