Optimum Feeding Strategy

To maximize economic efficiency and minimize adverse impacts on the environment, it would be advantageous to supply indispensable nutrients as close as possible to meeting but not exceeding the requirements. Two concepts that may contribute to such optimum feeding strategies for nonruminant species are ideal protein and formulation of diets based on available AA.[3] Similarly, metabolizable protein is used for ruminants,[6,8] even though absorbed and available AA are not synonymous, and it is assumed that an ideal pattern of absorbed AA also exists for ruminants.[8]
