The effects of sorghum type on amino acid digestion were determined by feeding heifers (230 kg) equipped with ruminal, duodenal, and ileal cannulas bird-resistant (BR) or non-BR grains that had a normal or waxy endosperm (NORMAL-BR, WAXY-BR, NORMAL, WAXY). Dry-rolled grain diets were fed at 2% of BW in a 4 x 4 Latin square design. Total (TAA), essential (EAA), and nonessential (NAA) amino acid intake (grams/day) tended to be greater for BR than for non-BR grains. Feed (plus endogenous) amino… CONTINUE READING
