It is a good study but anticipated effects and interactions sorghum inclusion and tannin levels in diets were not considered. Serine protease act and improve digestibility of kafirin in sorghum-based diets. However, there is a positive correlation between kafirin and tannin content in grain sorghum. Therefore, it was quite important to consider not only levels of sorghum but also tannin levels. Th ...

Thus, scientifically, its n ...
