Laboratory variation of 24 h in vitro gas production and estimated metabolizable energy values of ruminant feeds

Laboratory variation of 24 h in vitro gas production and estimated metabolizable energy values of ruminant feeds

A study of intra- and inter-laboratory variation of in vitro gas production and calculated metabolisable energy (ME, MJ/kg DM) values were studied using 16 test feeds in 7 laboratories...

A review article on in-vitro gas measuring techniques for assessment of nutritional quality of animal feeds

A review article on in-vitro gas measuring techniques for assessment of nutritional quality of animal feeds

The close association between rumen fermentation and gas production has been recognised several decades ago and has since been well studied. The gas production measurement technique has been widely used to determine organic matter digestibility, protein degradation, or to predict metabolisable energy content and feed digestion rate.
