In vitro characterisation of ruminant feeds and supplements

In vitro assessment of ruminant feeds (including forages, supplements and grains etc.) to assess feed quality.

Using the Ankom in vitro fermentation system, our analysis can provide information on:

  • Total gas production
  • Rate of fermentation
  • pH
  • Additional analysis including methane, ammonia and individual VFA production analysis

This information allows for feed quality to be assessed in established or novel feeds. Groups of feeds can also be compared and ranked based on fermentation qualities.
