Event: Goat Day
Tags: Dr tatiana Luisa Stanton, Goat Nutrition

We will cover the basics of goat nutrition and then go into more depth about how different carbohydrate and protein sources behave in the rumen. We will discuss rumen bypass protein and explore the concept of “potential fermentable fiber” (pFF) including how to estimate pFF and its effect on feed intake and on metabolic disorders such as acidosis, ketosis and milk fat depression in small ruminants.
