Desirable characteristics of forage legumes for improving protein utilization in ruminants
Journal of Animal Science
Forages help meet the protein requirements of ruminants by providing degraded CP for microbial protein synthesis plus protein that escapes ruminal degradation. Evidence from numerous feeding studies with lactating dairy cows indicates that excessive ruminal protein degradation may be the most limiting nutritional factor in higher-quality temperate legume forages. Hence, there is interest in identifying factors that influence the rate and extent of ruminal degradation of forage proteins.doi:10.2527/1995.7392760x pmid:8582869 fatcat:22mu4lsaojbthlgimogutewncy
