With all of the above in mind, the authors provide an overview of how the kidney responds to an acidic diet: "In response to the metabolic acidosis imposed by the acidogenic diet, the kidney implements adaptive processes aimed to restore the acid-base balance, including amplification of the urinary excretion of non-metabolizable ions, such as chloride, phosphate and sulfate, the conservation of metabolizable anions, such as citrate, and the activation of the urinary excretion of ammonium ions to expand both hydrogen ion and anion elimination.
The values of organic matter digestibility (OMD) of CS-BDCF-15% and CS-UDCF-15% were significant higher than that of CS, while metabolizable energy (ME) and net energy of lactation (NEL) were not different significantly in all silages (Table 2).
