Weight phase Nutrient HCP3 MCP4 (− 2%) LCP5 (− 4%)
25–50 kg CP1, % 17.42 15.76 13.54
NE2, MJ/kg 10.36 10.36 10.06
50–75 kg CP, % 16.01 13.70 12.24
NE, MJ/kg 10.36 10.36 10.06
75–100 kg CP, % 14.63 12.40 10.70
NE, MJ/kg 10.36 10.36 10.06
100–125 kg CP, % 13.11 10.67 9.33

  1. CP1: Analytical value
  2. NE2: According to the prediction equation of Noblet et al. [20] NE/(kcal/kg DM) = (0.700 × DE) + (1.61 × EE) + (0.48 × Starch)-(0.91 × CP)-(0.87 × ADF)
  3. HCP3: High crude protein
  4. MCP4: Medium crude protein
  5. LCP5: Low crude protein
