Sainfoin for Cattle forage

Animal Nutrition

Reasearch related to Animal Nutrition

One method for improving nitrogen (N) utilisation by ruminants and reduce greenhouse gases (CH4, N2O), without altering their N and energy value, is to use forages that contain condensed tannins (CT), such as sainfoin. The nutritive value of sainfoin, despite its lower N content than lucerne, is high. Future research, on the nutritional impact of CT must not only be based on CT content, but also..
