Improving the Efficiency of Feed Protein Utilization in the Dairy Cow Grant uri icon



  • The inefficient utilization of nitrogen in the rumen contributes to nitrogen pollution from dairy operations. The purpose of this project is to investigate possibilities of manipulating ruminal fermentation in order to improve the efficiency of milk protein synthesis and reduce nitrogen excretion in dairy cows.
