The results obtained in this study are in agreement with this statement, since the treatment without urea promoted lower nitrogen excretion via urine, while the other treatments promoted the linear excretion of urinary nitrogen, according to the inclusion of urea in the diet.
Losses of urinary nitrogen were lower but higher fecal nitrogen losses in feces for silage contained tannins.
05) of the supplementation on the urinary nitrogen excretion (UNE), nitrogen balance (NB), efficiency of nitrogen utilization (ENU), urinary excretion of urea nitrogen (UEUN) and serum urea nitrogen concentration (SUN).

Using more protein supplements than necessary also increases urinary nitrogen, often leading to additional nitrogen runoff that pollutes waterways, says Glen Broderick, a former ARS dairy scientist with the U.
Intake nitrogen, fecal nitrogen and urinary nitrogen were analysed for total nitrogen by Kjedahl method, and nitrogen balance and nitrogen retention were calculated according to the following formulas:
The total nitrogen intake, urinary nitrogen and nitrogen retention were similar among the frequencies.
The original purpose of the OPEN study, completed in 2000, was to assess self-reported dietary measurement error by comparing results from self-reported dietary intake questionnaires with objective biomarkers: doubly labeled water and urinary nitrogen.
From Week 2 to Week 3, shifts to more positive nitrogen balances occurred due to decreases in urinary nitrogen excretion.
The measurement of VO2, which is the equivalent of metabolic rate, and VCO2, as well as the measurement of urinary nitrogen (UN), can be used to determine the resting energy expenditure (REE).
Faecal and urinary nitrogen increased with Acacia levels.
The combined value for excreted metabolic fecal nitrogen and endogenous urinary nitrogen was estimated from the intercept of this equation to be 228.
