The buffering capacities of caecal and rumen digesta of sheep on different diets were determined by titration with lactic, acetic, and hydrochloric acids, and certain factors affecting the buffering capacity of rumen digesta were studied. Both rum...

The effects of post-rumen supply of nutrients on the rumen digesta load and voluntary consumption of roughage by Border Leicester X Merino ram lambs was investigated. A chopped wheaten hay was offered to the ram lambs (n 24), whose nutrient intake...

In 2 experiments, estimates of the quantity and composition of digesta in the reticulo-rumen of sheep given a roughage diet were made using a recently published marker technique. These estimates were compared with measurements made on the same she...

Rumen digesta load was related negatively to estimated net energy intake and positively to time spent in ruminating and duration of bolus chewing in young sheep fed on medium and low quality roughage diets. An interplay between rumen transactions...
