Impact of Starch and Energy on Amino Acid Requirements of Lactating Dairy Cattle
LaPierre, P.A.; Fredin, S.; Ross, D.; Van Amburgh, M.
Improved milk protein output and nitrogen use efficiency have been demonstrated in recent literature where cattle were given greater levels of glucogenic nutrients. This work evaluates this concept using optimal essential amino acid supplies relative to metabolizable energy and the formulation strategies from CNCPS v.7.
