Abstract

Methods for detecting and measuring the quantity of fibrolytic enzyme preparations added to feeds were investigated by enzymatic and tracer methods. Enzyme preparations added to corn silage, ryegrass silage, and a total mixed ration containing both silages and a concentrate could not be detected using their enzymatic activities. Glycosidase activities of solubles washed from the feed were more than an order of magnitude greater than glycosidases in the added enzymes. Carboxymethylcellulase and xylanase activity determinations, using reducing sugar release as the measurement, were subject to interference from reducing sugars present in the feed. A fluorescent tracer method, using fluorescein added at a rate of 1 g/L of feed enzymes, or 2 g/t of feed, was developed that enabled sensitive detection of liquid enzyme additions to feeds
