Invitro Digestibility

NDF digestibility is of significance because NDF can comprise from 40 to 60 percent of the forage crop dry matter content, so it is a major variable on how well that forage crop will perform in a dairy cow ration.  CVAS is leading the way, with over 12 invitro baths at our disposal, giving us a huge leap forward in measuring and benchmarking the relative NDF digestibility (expressed as percentage NDF) of all forage crops for dairy cows.
