Our objective was to determine the effects of feeding oscillating compared with static dietary crude protein (CP) concentrations on nitrogen (N) retention and urea flux across ruminal epithelia. Twenty-seven Suffolk wether lambs (n = 9) were assigned to a medium-CP diet [MEDIUM; 127 g CP⋅kg dry matter (DM)(-1)] or to diets with oscillating CP content (OSC) fed in 2 different sequences, i.e. 2 d of low CP (103 g CP⋅kg DM(-1)) followed by 2 d of high CP (161 g CP⋅kg DM(-1); OSC-HIGH) or vice… CONTINUE READING
