The Power of Protein in Cattle Diets
Protein is essential within the diet of a ruminant to supply the ammonia needed for microbial growth and to provide the amino acids needed for absorption from the small intestine. A deficiency in protein can limit microbial activity, microbial protein synthesis and rate of digestion. All these can in turn impact feed and energy intake. Furthermore, if an animal receives insufficient amounts of protein, production of meat, milk, and wool can be dramatically reduced.
