Relationship between dietary metabolizability (qm = GE/ME) and efficiencies of conversion of NE for maintenance and lactation to ME in AFRC, CSIRO and INRA feeding systems. was extrapolated from NRC requirement tables. 83. It was not possible to extrapolate the actual values used to compute ME requirements because, in the case of lactating ewes, the milk yield used to compute the requirements was not given. The comparison of the efficiency of utilization of ME for maintenance showed that AFRC and CSIRO estimated higher efficiencies than INRA, which uses the same kl for maintenance as for lactation (Fig.
