In digestion and N balance trials with steers, the addition of live-cell yeast to low-quality roughage and fattening-type rations depressed the digestibility of ether extract in each ration. The digestibility of other nutrients was unaffected. Differences in N retention, which favored yeast in the roughage rations only, were not significant. Results have a possible bearing on the problem of low fat tolerance in ruminants.
