There has for many years been much discussion concerning the merits of formulating diets on the basis of digestible versus total amino acids in feedstuffs. A major problem has been the method of measurement. There are several methods and all are open to criticism.

Industry has been making some adjustment to account for differences in the digestibility of the amino acids in different feedstuffs based on research and experience in diet formulation. The outcome of the research reported here should offer a practical guide for such adjustment.
