Investigating the mechanical properties of temperate, subtropical, and tropical fodder

There is strong, qualitative evidence that fodder crops produced in the tropics are 'tougher' and less nutritious than fodder crops produced in subtropical and temperate regions.However, tools that can quantify the mechanical properties of fodder crops, particularly those with direct relevance to feeding and nutrition, are lacking.

Microbial colonisation of the insoluble components of low- and high-quality fodder

The nutritional quality of fodders, a type of animal feed, varies widely. It's not clear whether the mechanism by which microorganisms in the rumen break down the fibre in low-quality, medium-quality, and high-quality fodders also varies.

Ruminant digestion of temperate, sub-tropical, and tropical fodders

The nutritional value of fodder, a type of animal feed, varies depending on the climate in which it is produced (i.e., temperate, sub-tropical, and tropical). The reasons for these differences has not been fully explained.
