This book brings together the latest research on protein absorption by ruminants and takes a look at the calculation of optimum nutrient requirements, including bacterial digestion, in the calculations. It also describes the parameters of nitrogen conversion in the ruminant and examines the different kinds of protein found in animal feedstuffs.;ITAnimal Feed Science and Technology;IT calls it "essential for all scientists and teachers actively working in ruminant nutrition research and instruction."
