Comparison of net energy (NE) values measured at MAFIC with those predicted by equations from INRA. NE values of 26 ingredients or 34 diets measured at MAFIC or predicted based on an INRA prediction eq. (NE = (0.7 × DE) + [(1.61 × EE) + (0.48 × Starch) –(0.91 × CP)–(0.87 × ADF)]/1000 × 4.184) were illustrated. ADF: Acid detergent fiber; CP: crude protein; DE: Digestible energy; EE: Ether extract
