Validation of the in vitro ruminant digestibility method applied on Daisy Incubator

Ana Elena Cismileanu, Smaranda Toma

Abstract


Determination of digestibility for ruminant feeds is important for nutritive value evaluation, and for practical use the in vitro methods are widely applied. The new version of Tilley-Terry in vitro method was used on Ankom Daisy Incubator and validated by testing repeatability, reproducibility and correlation with previous method version. All these validation parameters have been attended and the new version of method is indicated for current use.
