Ruminants make efficient use of diets that are poor in true protein content because microbes in the rumen are able to synthesize a large proportion of the animal’s required protein. The amino acid (AA) pattern of this protein is of better quality than nearly all of the dietary ingredients commonly fed to domestic ruminants (Broderick, 1994; Schwab, 1996). In addition, utilization of ammonia by ruminal microbes allows the feeding of nonprotein N (NPN) compounds, such as urea, as well as the… CONTINUE READING
