gardneriana were highly contaminated with fungi Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus sp., and Penicillium sp., which are storage fungi that can cause seed damage and compromise their quality, resulting in germination process deterioration and death (Lazarotto et al., 2010).
So, the aim of this study was to investigate the effects of Aspergillus niger fermentation or protease hydrolysis of cottonseed meal on CP, water-soluble protein (WSP), amino acid (AA) and peptide fractions, and the amino acid digestibility and metabolic energy of fermented CSM and hydrolyzed CSM in white leghorn roosters.
