Description and evaluation of a net energy intake model as a function of dietary chewing index.

Abstract

Previously, a linear relationship has been found between net energy intake (NEI) and dietary chewing index (CI) of the diet for different types of cattle. Therefore, we propose to generalize and calibrate this relationship into a new model for direct prediction of NEI by dairy cows from CI values (CINE; min/MJ of NE). Furthermore, we studied the forage-to… (More)
