Lecture 8 9/21/11


Definition of Energy -the potential to perform work -energy is not a nutrient
Units -calorie=the heat required to raise the temp of 1g of water from 16.5 to 17.5*C -measured in Kcal(Cal), Mcal
Factors Regulating Energy Balance/Use -feed quantity/quality -feed intake regulation -animal genetics/physiological state -environment
Factors of Feed Quality/Quantity -how much is offered -nutrient content and balance -digestibility
Factors of Feed Intake Regulation -dependent on dietary and non-dietary factors -fill, energy density -behavior, environment
Factors of Animal Genetics/Physiological State -potential to utilize energy
Factors of Environment -temperature, wind, humidity, etc. -housing
Expressions for Energy Values for Feeds -Physiological Fuel Value System -TDN: Total Digestible Nutrients -DE: Digestible Energy -ME: Metabolizable Energy -NE: Net Energy -GE: Gross Energy -FE: Fecal Energy
Phys Fuels Values -used in human and lab animal guidelines -estimates can vary greatly depending on source of nutrient -carbohydrate 4kcal/g -fat 9kcal/g -protein 4kcal/g
Total Digestible Nutrient -TDN -measure of relative energy value of a feed(in tables as a %) -sum of digestible CP, CF, NFE plus (digestible EE x 2.25) -does not include energy loss from urine, fermentation, gases, heat losses
Gross Energy -GE -total heat of combustion(kcal)
Fecal Energy -FE -undigested food, microbial cells, and endogenous losses
Digestible Energy -DE -DE=GE-FE -the portion of the GE in a feed that is not excreted in feces(reflects diet digestibility)
Metabolizable Energy -ME -ME=DE-(urinary energy and combustible gas losses) -measure the dietary energy available for metabolism
Urinary Losses in ME -N compounds(urea, creatinine, allantoin, etc.) -non-N compounds
Gaseous Losses in ME -methane(CH4) -ruminants gasseous losses>urinary losses -roughages>concentrates(gaseous losses)
Net Energy -NE -NE=ME-HI(heat increment: ingestion & digestion) -portion available for sustenance of life and productive purposes -maintenance(NEm): basal metabolism, voluntary activity, heat to warm/cool body -production(NEp): work, product synthesis
Maintence Energy Requirement -amount of feed energy intake that will result in no net loss or gain of energy from the tissues of the animal body
Difference in NEm and NEg -different efficiencies between maintenance and growth

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
