Abstract


This literature review had as objective to relate the importance of the carbohydrate and protein synchronization in ruminant diets. The nutritional requirements systems to ruminant that give support to the diets formulations, require that the feeds commonly used in the feeding are fractional for best characterize them. Along the years there was considerable progress in the ruminant nutrition, but that progress, most of the time, was based on empiric determinations that not respected the multiple microbial interrelations and they considered the ruminal ecosystem are very complex and not understood.
