Predicting Fiber Digestion in Dairy Cattle

Predicting Fiber Digestion in Dairy Cattle

Record date: May 14, 2014

David Combs, Professor, Department of Dairy Science, UW-Madison, explains the importance of the fiber digestibility of foraged plants as feed for cattle and sheep. Combs discusses an in vitro method to predict the rate and extent of fiber digestion that greatly improves the ability to predict how ruminants will perform on forages.
