Increasing the efficiency of conversion of feed nitrogen (N) into milk and meat N in dairy cattle is an integral part of the effort to maintain or increase food production while decreasing agriculture's environmental impact. Mathematical models provide a means to assess and compare different...

The buffalo species represents the mainstay of the rural economy of small farmers in many developing countries, and is also an important source of protein. Because of its area of origin, it shows some peculiar characteristics regarding protein requirements and nitrogen balance. Therefore, this...

The established official protein recommendations for the blue fox are based on the amount of digestible protein without consideration of the amino acid content of the feed. Recent research with blue foxes has thrown light on the amino acid requirements of this species, thus allowing for more...

This review considers protein requirements of ruminants and discusses systems which have previously been used to estimate requirements. The Working Party of the Agricultural and Food Research Council recommends that, since protein requirements should take account of the separate needs of rumen...

Change in amino acid requirements of pigs with somatotropin enhanced protein accretion is reviewed. There is a large difference in the extent of increase in amino acid requirement at different stages of growth. An increase in protein accretion of about 20% during the 20-50 kg phase of growth occurs ...

The concept of ideal, or complete, protein in terms of availability and digestibility, and its application allow the potential protein value of the diet and the pig's amino acid requirements to be expressed in a single quantity. This review considers amino acid digestibility and requirements and...

It is concluded that the absorbable amount of protein in human milk is probably only 0.6 g/100 ml, about half the amount previously assumed. It is suggested that protein recommendations for term infants should be re-evaluated. Infant formulas may provide proteins in excess of requirements but more...
