131 Nitrogen is an important element in animal nutrii tion. Food consumed by herbivores is usually nitroo genndeficient; this applies both to protein and nonn protein nitrogen. Therefore, minimization of nitrogen losses that result from deamination of amino acids and nitrogenous bases is especially important for strict herr bivores consuming feed with a relatively low content of this element. Urea recycling is one of pathways of dietary nitroo gen conservation in the bodies of herbivores… Expand
