- ... High starch samples are difficult to filter using the neutral detergent fiber (NDF) method. Additional research is also required to identify the best in vitro dry matter disappearance (IVDMD) technique for prediction of in vivo digestibility of whole-plant corn (Zea mays L.) forage. We designed experiments to compare methods of NDF and IVDMD determination for predicting in vivo intake and digestib ...
