Two slaughter experiments were conducted to determine the effects of rumen escape starch, by altering concentration and corn particle size, on alpha-amylase activity in the pancreas and the small intestinal digesta of lambs. In experiment 1, 18 wether lambs (28.5 +/- 1.6 kg) were fed low, medium or high starch diets for 35 d and slaughtered. Dietary starch concentrations linearly increased rumen escape starch (p < 0.05).
