oa Agroanimalia - Estimation of forage intake on pasture using faecal nitrogen concentration and in vitro digestibility results

Volume 6, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 0302-7104



In an investigation aimed at the development of a method for estimating feed intake of grazing sheep, the data of digestion trials on 28 forages were used. The relationship between the intake factor (organic matter consumed: organic matter excreted) and percentage nitrogen in faecal organic matter and the relationship between in vivo and in vitro digestibility were investigated.
