Nutrient requirements of goats.
Agronomía Mesoamericana: Vol. 13, Issue 2 (July-December)
ecuations have been obtained to calculate nutrient
requirements of goats (TDN, DE, ME, NE, TP, DP, Ca, P,
Vitamin A and Vitamin D) on different physiological stages:
maintenance, growth and milk production, based on NRC
nutrient requirements tables. The R-square was calculated
for each equation to establish the degree of adjustment.
