Fantastic FCR and nutrient utilization to counter balancing the effect, slowing down the passage rate for better absorption and increasing gut size for enhanced gut surface area for improved absorption.
As nutritionist are focusing fiber solubilization as a source of energy. Lets see what comes next

In large animals like cattle dietary fibre can likely alter the essential fatty acid like propionic and butyric acid production by the microflora that can directly affect the quality and quantity of milk produced at any given time.

Dietary fibre is important and yes, I like the article, but one point needs to add which type of fibre is also important. And yes, fiber helps in modulation of intestinal microbiota and good fibre like sunflower meal fibre helps in the reduction of pathogens. Fibre is important for feeding microbiota it may not have any nutritive value, but plays an important role in the gut.
