TRIANA GONZALEZ, Delmy; CURBELO RODRIGUEZ, Lino  and  LOYOLA HERNANDEZ, Oscar. Bioeconomic Indicators of Ateleia cubensis (DC) Dietr for Production with Ruminants in Camagüey. Rev. prod. anim. [online]. 2017, vol.29, n.1, pp.16-20. ISSN 2224-7920.

Assessment of bioeconomic indicators of Ateleia cubensis (DC) Dietr for production with ruminants was made on ferromagnesium redbrown fersiallitic soils of ultramafic savannah in Camagüey, Cuba. The bioeconomic effect was simulated with a double purpose production system oriented to milk sales, as the main product, on 35 ha. A protein bank was recommended in the area, using A. cubensis (DC) Dietr, in 15 % of the total farm area. To simulate milk production response, feed balances were performed, all based on grass consumption probability and feeds used, according to their nutritional quality. The budget was portioned for analysis to determine feasibility of the plant for protein banks. Feasibility of the plant as a local source of protein for cattle was demonstrated through a bioeconomic perspective.

Keywords : protein bank; bioeconomic effect; cattle; milk production; legume; simulation.
