The hemicellulose integrates the neutral detergent fiber (NDF) and is calculated as the difference between NDF and acid detergent fiber (ADF), and is more digestible than cellulose.
From animal feed prospective, Neutral Detergent Fiber (NDF) and Acid Detergent Fiber (ADF) are good measurements for quality animal feed (Ball et al.
The same was true for acid detergent fiber with respective values of 29.
Acid detergent fiber (ADF) is the NDF less the most digestible fiber component, hemicellulose.
If you buy hay with more than 35% acid detergent fiber, your goats will find it tough to eat and hard to digest.
CP was determined by the Kjeldahl method [7], and acid detergent fiber (ADF) and neutral detergent fiber (NDF) were measured by the method of Goering and Van Soest [8].
The dry matter (DM), crude protein (CP), propionic acid (PA) neutral detergent fiber (NDF), acid detergent fiber (ADF) did not significantly (P<0.
It was determined the levels of dry matter (DM) (INCT-CA G-003/1), crude protein (CP) (INCT-CA M-001/1), ether extract (EE) (INCT-CA G-005/1), mineral matter (MM) (INCT-CA N-001/1), neutral detergent fiber (NDF) (INCT-CA F-002/1), neutral detergent fiber corrected for ash (NDFa) (INCT-CA M-002/1) and neutral detergent insoluble protein (NDIP) (INCTCA N-004/1), acid detergent fiber (ADF) acid detergent fiber corrected for ash (ADFa) (INCT-CA M-003/1), acid detergent insoluble protein (ADIP) (INCT-CA N-005/1) and lignin (LIG) (INCT-CA F-005/1).
Intakes of dry matter (DM), crude protein (CP), crude fiber (CF), neutral detergent fiber (NDF) and acid detergent fiber (ADF) were statistically similar (P>0.
