Data from recent research in animal nutrition, important for breeders of fodder plants

Summary

Preliminary investigations as to the practical influence of increased protein content in barley on the nutritional value of concentrates supplied for pig feeding, indicate that this influence is not very important.

At first it does not seem attractive for the breeder to develop selection plans with the aim of increassing the protein content in protein poor crops. It seems probably that the aims for breeding brewing barley and fodder barley are not incompatible as brewing barley must contain some protein for the development of yeast and a higher protein content is practical irrelevant for fodder barley.

Research into the digestibility and feeding value of grass species shows that the breeder may have confidence in the chemically determined protein contents as a measure of the real nutritive value.
