Protein is a nutritional element that is needed in the growth of livestock body tissues. Protein deficiency can inhibit livestock productivity and even reduce their weight, especially in livestock that is growing, pregnant and lactating periods1. Provision of protein in ruminant livestock rations is very crucial because of the low-protein content in tropical forages2,3 and low-protein content in concentrates3, especially on small farms. Therefore; cattle feed supplements (CFS) are made which can supply feed protein for ruminant and support microbial protein synthesis in the rumen, but the supply of quality protein is faced with the problem of degradation of proteins in the rumen which decreases the biological value of proteins.

In ruminants, have a uniqueness in protein metabolism by rumen microbial activity. Dietary protein in the rumen will be degraded to polypeptides and amino acids and then deaminated to ammonia (NH3) which is needed for microbial protein synthesis4. The rate of degradation is an indicator of the amount of protein from ration available for ruminant5. Protein degradation in the rumen will reduce the biological value of feed protein6, therefore proteins need to be protected so that more amino acids are available in post-rumen digestion. Protein protection needs to consider the supply of ammonia to microbes7,8, because microbial proteins are the main protein source for ruminant6,9.

Gambier leaf residue (GLR) is a waste from the extraction of gambir leaves (Uncaria gambier Roxb.) containing 9.96% condensed tannins and potentially added to CFS for protecting proteins from microbial degradation in the rumen. Tannins are polyphenol compounds that can form complexes with proteins that are resistant to microbial degradation at neutral pH in the rumen10. The GLR is abundantly available from gambier industries considering that Indonesia is the main gambier producer in the world, especially West Sumatra11.

This study wanted to test the level of GLR as a protein protector to protection feed protein from rumen microbes degradation. This study aims to obtain the optimal level of GLR which results in a minimum degradation of the CFS protein in the rumen.


This research was conducted in February-April, 2017. Analysis of the samples was carried out at the Ruminant Nutrition Laboratory of the Faculty of Animal Husbandry, Andalas University, Padang and the Payakumbuh State Agricultural Polytechnic Livestock Laboratory.

Treatment ration: Cattle feed supplement made with the composition in Table 1 with 4 levels of GLR addition, namely 0% (control), 2.5, 5.0 and 7.5% (DM) with iso-protein and energy. The GLR was taken from the gambier industrial center in Limapuluh Kota, west Sumatra, Indonesia and then dried in an oven at 60°C for 24 h and then ground into flour. Brown sugar plus 37.50% water, boiled until all the sugar is melted, then added the soybean meal, coconut meal and GLR then stirred and then mixed with all the other CFS ingredients. The dough is forming with a pellet machine and dried in an oven at 60°C for 24 h.

In vitro procedure: In vitro rumen digestion was carried out follow the first stage procedure of Tilley and Terry12. Rumen fluid was obtained from the Padang city slaughterhouse originating from 4 cattle that were given grass rations. Rumen fluid is taken immediately after the cattle are slaughtered by squeezing the rumen contents using 4 layers of gauze and accommodated with a thermos that has been warmed previously by filling warm water at 40°C for 2 min. Rumen liquid was mixed with a McDougall13 buffer solution at ratio 1: 4 and then poured 50 mL into a fermenter tube containing 0.5 g of CFS sample and without CFS as blank. To create an anaerobic condition, CO2 gas is sprayed for 30 sec into the fermenter tube and immediately installed a rubber cap that has been equipped with a fermentation gas exhaust valve. Incubation was carried out in a shaker water bath at a temperature of 39°C with a horizontal stirring of 20 swings per minute for 3, 6, 12, 24 and 48 h of incubation. At the end of the incubation, the fermenter tube is soaked in cold water at 4°C to stop the fermentation process.

Sample analysis: The ruminal pH in the fermenter tube was measured with Hanna pH meter (Hi9807-phep) then the fermenter tube content was centrifuged at 3,000 rpm for 5 min at 4°C. The supernatant was analyzed to determine the NH3-N concentration in rumen fluid using Conway micro diffusion method14 while the residue was washed with distilling water 3 times with centrifuges as before and then filtered with Whatman 41 filter paper, dried and weighed. Dry residues were analyzed to determine crude protein by the Kjeldahl method14. Rumen undegraded dietary protein (RUDP) is the difference between residual protein and the blank, whereas protein degradation is the percentage of difference sample protein incubated with RUDP.

TCA-soluble N is determined by following the procedure of Griswold7, rumen fluid is homogenized by a stirrer for 2 min, then pour 10 mL into a centrifuge tube and add 20 mL mixture of Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) 20% and Sulfosalicylic acid (SSA) 2% and leave it for 1 h. Then centrifuged 3,000 rpm for 20 min at 4°C and the residue obtained was analyzed using the Kjeldahl method14. TCA-soluble N is estimated containing nitrogen from peptides, amino acids and NH3-N, so the peptide can be determined after correction with NH3-N.

Statistical analysis: The data were analyzed statistically using a one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) by IBM SPSS Statistics 24 Core System15 by F-test and indicated by their p-value. If the treatment effect was significant, differences among treatments were determined using Tukey’s multiple comparison procedure. Standard errors of the means and p-value were reported and effects were considered significant at a probability of p<0.05. Regression analysis was used to determine the optimum level of GLR in CFS and to estimate the minimum rate of protein degradation in the rumen.


Ruminal protein degradation: In Table 2, the level of addition of GLR in CFS is statistically significant (p<0.05) for all parameters. The Tukey-test showed that the protein degradation of CFS in the rumen decreased after the addition of GLR starting from the lowest level, but not significantly different from the other higher levels. The addition of GLR in the CFS decreased ruminal protein degradation in the average of 16.84% compared to the control. In Fig. 1, the protein degradation of CFS which received additional GLR was consistently lower than the control at all observed incubation times.

The addition of GLR can protect the CFS protein from rumen degradation because of the condensed tannin content in GLR. Multiple regression analysis showed the protein degradation in the rumen significantly decreased linearly due to an increase in tannin level (x1) and ratio of tannin to protein (x2) following the equation:

y = 0.698-0.082 (x1)-0.001 (x2)

with n = 16; R2 = 0.40; p = 0.039.

The degradation of proteins in the rumen produced the final product of NH3 in this study, the kinetic NH3-N rumen in Fig. 2 showed an increase in NH3-N concentration in the rumen from 3 h of incubation and the highest at 48 h of incubation. NH3-N concentrations were significantly higher in controls than those treated with GLR addition.

RUDP and peptide N: Table 2 shows the addition of GLR caused an increase in rumen undegraded dietary protein (RUDP) from CFS (p<0.01) compared to controls. The increase in RUDP an average of 42.38% and began to occur at the lowest level and did not differ statistically to a higher level. Figure 3 shows a 5-7.5% GLR level produces consistently higher RUDP than the 2.5% GLR level at all observed incubation times.

The final observation on 48 h of incubation showed that the TCA-soluble N increased significantly at the 5-7.5% GLR level. Figure 4 shows that the 5-7.5% GLR level in the CFS produced the highest TCA-soluble N and was consistent at all times incubation.

The difference of TCA-soluble N and NH3-N is part of the peptide produced during rumen fermentation. The peptides were produced highest on CFS which received an additional GLR at the level of 5-7.5%. Likewise, the results of the observations in Fig. 5 show the highest peptide results at this level.

Optimum level of GLR: Table 3 shows the pattern of CFS protein degradation in the rumen with the addition of GLR. Protein degradation can be estimated through the quadratic regression equation:

D = b1x2+b2x+a

with a high correlation (R2 ranged 0.782-0.994; p<0.05). Results of regression analysis showed that optimum GLR addition ranged 4.64-5.12% of CFS dry matter (p<0.05). Based on the estimate the optimum level of addition of GLR in CFS above will result in a minimum protein degradation rate of 1.05-14.99% h–1, the highest rate will occur at 3 h incubation and the lowest rate at 48 h incubation.


This study has decreased the degradation of protein in the rumen due to the addition of GLR starting at the level of 2.5-7.5%. The GLR protects protein occurs due to the GLR contain condensed tannin compounds in which these compounds are able to bind proteins by form a tannin-protein complex that is resistant to proteolytic enzymes from rumen microbes16,17. Condensed tannin effect of grape seed, myrabolan, sumach and valonea in grass silage was reported to reduce protein degradation in the rumen in vitro to 74.5-79.1% compared to 80.8% in control18. Condensed tannins are able to bind proteins due to having the large number of phenolic groups that can bind to the peptide carbonyl10. The bonds of tannin with proteins are reversible bonds influenced by pH in the form of free radical hydrogen bonds of phenolic groups with amide group oxygen19. Besides, that tannin compounds inhibit the growth of proteolysis bacteria20 and inhibit the activity of proteolytic bacterial enzymes from Butyrivibrio fibrisolvens and Streptococcus bovis21.

In the rumen, more than 70% of the soluble protein is degraded to ammonia (NH3) after amino acid deamination22. The crude protein in CFS consisted of 15.46% feed protein and non-protein nitrogen (urea) equivalent to 14.38% crude protein. High degradation of crude protein at 3 and 6 h of incubation was hydrolysis of urea to NH3 as evidenced by high NH3 concentration (8.56-9.99 mg/100 mL of rumen fluid) in this period. Hydrolysis of urea to NH3 in the rumen lasts 1-8 h of incubation with a peak at 2 h of incubation23,24.

The protein degradation value of ration is important to be calculated with respect to the supply of ammonia (NH3) for microbial growth. NH3-N concentrations in this study both control and treatment were in the optimal supply of NH3-N for rumen microbial growth in the range of 2-25 mg NH3-N/100 mL rumen fluit25, with a minimum supply of 5 mg/100 mL26. The resulting ammonia is immediately used by the rumen microbes as nitrogen for microbial protein synthesis23. The concentration of NH3-N required for optimal rumen microbial growth27 is 11.92-13.95 mg/100 mL. In this study, NH3-N concentration is relatively constant at 3-24 h incubation showed NH3-N supply from protein degradation is balanced with microbial requirements, whereas at 48 h incubation there is an increase in NH3-N due to low usage because the rate of microbial protein synthesis is also low in this period24.

The RUDP is a part of protein feed that can be available in post-rumen as a protein bypass for ruminant, while the degraded one turns into ammonia (NH3) which will be used by rumen microbes. In this study, the rumen pH was not significantly different by the GLR levels. Condensed tannin form complex bonds with proteins at neutral pH in the rumen which causes an increase in RUDP as a protein that is released from degradation into the abomasum28,29. The tannin-protein complex is available as a protein bypass30 of 40-60%. The flow of tannin-protein complexes increases the supply of peptides and amino acids in the small intestine29. The tannin-protein complex can be decomposed due to changes in pH in the abomasum and small intestine31, so that it can be digested and absorbed by the ruminant.

The GLR increased TCA-soluble N concentrations in all incubation periods. TCA-soluble N is a combination of nitrogen derived from feed proteins that escape degradation and protein from microbes in the form of peptides, amino acids and ammonia7. The increase in TCA-soluble N occurs due to the increase in protein feed that escapes degradation (RUDP). Peptides and amino acids, in this case are called peptides alone which are part of the protein that will carry the flow of feed from the rumen to the small intestine to be digested and absorbed by the body of the ruminant. Peptide N is a degradable protein-tannin complex which will break down into proteins and free tannins when in the abomasum (pH 2.5-3.5) and small intestine (pH 8-9)32, so protected feed protein can be used by ruminants.

This study obtained the optimum GLR addition is 4.88% of CFS dry matter and minimized protein degradation in the rumen. At this optimum level, CFS containing condensed tannin 1.09-1.20%. Other researchers reported lower levels of optimal condensed tannin, 0.50% in coconut cake33 and 0.6% tannin condensed in soybean meal34. Condensed tannin levels used in many studies to protect protein in the rumen are divided into low levels (1-2%), moderate levels (2-4%) and high levels of more than 4%10. The optimum level of tannins in this study was classified as a low level of 1.14% tannins in CFS with a ratio of tannin/protein non-urea is 1/31.21 or 1 g condensed tannin is able to bind 31.21 g protein. This finding is almost the same as the report of Sasongko et al.35 that, 1 g of tannin contained in jackfruit leaves can bind 28.89 g protein of bovine serum albumin.


The addition of GLR in CFS can reduce the degradation of protein in the rumen, increase RUDP, increase TCA-soluble N and higher Peptide N will be available for post-rumen digestion. The content of condensed tannin and the ratio of tannins/protein in CFS correlated with protein degradation in the rumen and had a positive impact in increasing the utilization of protein from CFS for cattle. The optimum level of addition of GLR is 4.88% of CFS dry matter that obtains the minimum protein degradation rate in the rumen.


This study demonstrates that gambier leaf residue (GLR) is able to protect feed proteins from microbial degradation in the rumen and increase the peptides that will be available in post-rumen digestion. This study will help researchers identify critical aspects of protein protection through the addition of GLR to cattle feed supplements, which was previously unexplored. This will allow a new hypothesis about cattle feed supplementations with the addition of GLRs be developed.
