Characterization of carbohydrates in concentrates for dairy cows



Characterization of carbohydrates in concentrates for dairy cows



Recent developments in ruminant nutrition 3: 155-174



The importance of carbohydrates in dairy cow diets is reviewed, with sections on identification of carbohydrates, chemical analysis, degradability, starch and structural polysaccharide (NDF) degradability, feed intake in relation to carbohydrate composition, milk performance in relation to supply of nutrients to the mammary gland, precursors for milk components, and milk fat and protein contents.
