Abstract

Optimizing Starch Nutrition for Postmodern Ruminants: Science against Pseudoscience

Akbar Nikkhah

This article calls for a global must on moderating starch nutrition to help optimize rumen fermentation, splanchnic metabolism, peripheral nutrient efficiency, animal health and economics, and environmental sustainability. The mistaken trend in increasing starch inclusion from cereals in modern ruminant diets must be ceased. The sustainability of the postmodern ruminant science and industry lies on moderated optimized starch utilization.
