Fecal Near-Infrared Reflectance Spectroscopy Prediction of the Feed Value of Temperate Forages for Ruminants and Some Parameters of the Chemical Composition of Feces: Efficiency of Four Calibration Strategies.


The forage feed value determined by organic matter digestibility (OMD) and voluntary intake (VI) is hard and expensive. Thus, several indirect methods such as near infrared reflectance (NIR) spectroscopy have been developed for predicting the feed value of forages. In this study, NIR spectra of 1040 samples of feces from sheep fed fresh temperate forages… (More)
