|Title:||Degradation of dietary nitrate in the rumen and its use as a potential nitrogen source for rumen micro-organisms||Contributor(s):||Nolan, John V (author) ; Dobos, Robin Christopher (author) ; von Pirch, Catherine (author)||Publication Date:||2009||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/5160||Abstract:||Inclusion of nitrate (NO3⁻) instead of urea in the diet of ruminants provides non-protein nitrogen for rumen micro-organisms and, at the same time, has the potential to reduce rumen methane production (Leng, 2008). However, there is little information on whether NO3⁻ is taken up as such by rumen micro-organisms or is reduced to ammonia (NH3) before assimilation.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Recent Advances in Animal Nutrition - Australia, Armidale, Australia, 12th July - 15th July 2009||Conference Details:||Recent Advances in Animal Nutrition - Australia, Armidale, Australia, 12th July - 15th July 2009||Source of Publication:||Recent Advances in Animal Nutrition - Australia, v.17, p. 184-184||Publisher:||University of New England||Place of Publication:||Armidale, Australia||ISSN:||0819-4823||Field of Research (FOR):||070204 Animal Nutrition||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.conferencecompany.com.au/animalnutrition/
