Effects of a polymer-coated urea product on nitrogen metabolism in lactating Holstein dairy cattle.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of polymer-coated urea on nitrogen retention, rumen microbial growth, and milk production and composition. Coated urea (CU) that is more slowly hydrolyzed to ammonia than unprotected urea could potentially be used more efficiently by rumen microorganisms. Eight cows were offered each of three diets in a… (More)
