Dietary fiber also plays a pivotal role in goat production through its influence in and interaction with the intake and digestion of nutrients.
Physiological regulation (feedback from metabolic factors) of intake is dominant in goats fed high-concentrate diets, while physical fill is the predominant factor in the regulation of intake when goats were fed high-forage diets. Mediated through salivation and buffering capacity, dietary fiber intake influences mastication and rumen fermentation.
In growing goats, dietary metabolizable energy density abo...
