As a result, we generally feed them a diet of plant and animal-based protein to ensure they get a complete and balanced palate of nutrients. But an omnivorous mix isnt the only way to meet all their needs. Its not the proteins that dogs require, as much as the constituent amino acids.

There is a huge difference between the maize silage-based diets typical of US dairy systems and those of grass silage-based diets in Northern Ireland. Maize silage is typically a high starch, low protein forage so utilization of the rumen degradable protein fraction is relatively efficient. Grass silage, on the other hand, contains up to twice the level of protein found in maize silage and most of this protein (about 60%) is highly soluble. But with less than 6% fermentable sugars, achieving efficient protein utilization with grass silage-based diets is much more difficult.
