What’s new with Fibre Analysis and the Benefits – Jakob Kleinmans, PhD Agric. Science

Fibre is important in the ruminant diet, however with increasing fibre in the diet comes a decrease in energy which impacts on production. In high performance animals it is hard to satisfy both the high energy requirements to support milk production and get enough physically effective fibre in the diet to support rumen health.

In this presentation, Jakob explains some of the different ways of analysing the fibre components in the ruminant diet, looking over the fence at what is being done overseas as well.
