Predicting Diet Quality of White-Tailed Deer via NIRS Fecal Profiling

Abstract

Near infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) of feces for the prediction of diet quality in several species of livestock and wildlife has been reported. The technique has not been reported in deer. This study was conducted to determine the ability of fecal NIRS to determine dietary crude protein (CP), digestible organic matter (DOM), and phosphorus (P) in… (More)
