Symposium on factors influencing the voluntary intake of herbage by ruminants: voluntary intake in relation to chemical composition and digestibility



Symposium on factors influencing the voluntary intake of herbage by ruminants: voluntary intake in relation to chemical composition and digestibility



J. Animal Sci 24: 834-843



Information on voluntary intake by sheep or cattle and digestibility was available. Estimations of cellulose and total protein also were made. Fibre was estimated by a method with detergent which divided the sample into cell contents and cell wall constituents. In forages from West Virginia given freshly cut there was a significant correlation between voluntary intake and either chemical composition or digestibility in 4 of7 species.
