Controlled-Release Feed Additives for Ruminants: I. Cellulose-Based Coating Compositions for Rumen-Stable Nutrients
Ruminant animals such as cattle, sheep, goats, and buffalo make a very important contribution to man’s welfare by producing both food and fiber for man’s use. In addition, the dietary needs of these animals are not largely competitive with those of man. Thus the beef and dairy industries represent a major segment of the U.S. economy.’ However, ruminant animals are relatively inefficient in utilizing their diet.
