dc.description.abstract Proteins of fresh forage of the main legume species (lucerne and white clover) are extensively degraded in the rumen, and consequently poorly valorized by the ruminants. Lotus genus species (birdsfoot trefoil) are forage legume species that produce condensed tannins, that limit ruminal protein degradation. We studied the effect of adding either Lotus forage or purified tannins extracted from Lotus to lucerne and white clover forages, on in vitro protein solubility. Addition of purified tannins to lucerne induced a reduction in protein solubility from 41.5% to 23.8%. The mixture of Lotus to lucerne and white clover also induced a reduction in protein degradation. Possible ways to reduce protein degradation in lucerne and white clover, using technical or genetic methods, are proposed. en
