Abstract

Fermented feedstuffs contain a number of volatile compounds such as organic acids, alcohols, ammonia and others that are lost in the oven dry-down process used to estimate feed dry matter. By not accounting for these components, errors in the estimation of moisture, caloric content and crude protein content of the feed will occur. This paper addresses the volatile components of major concern.
