Biuret, a non protein nitrogen compound, has shown promise as a protein substitute for ruminants fed poor quality roughages. Urea, by comparison, cannot be sued without an adequate supply of energy in the form of either grain or molasses. Biuret is not broken down to ammonia so rapidly as urea is. Biuret, therefore, is less toxic than urea.
