dc.description.abstractThe primary goal of animal nutritionists working with animals used for human consumption is to meet nutritional requirements of the animal while at the same time trying to maximize gain and feed efficiency for obvious economical reasons. One nutritional factor that limits feed efficiency in ruminants, as compared to nonruminants, is their apparent inability to digest large quantities of starch in the small intestine. Numerous factors are involved in the extent and site of digestion of dietary starch in ruminants.
