  • Abstract:

    (1) In a continuation of the study of the digestibility of the same lucerne hay by the same steers at different times further evidence of a period influence on digestibility was obtained. This influence could be reduced or eliminated by following a simplified technique in planning digestion trials with different feeding stuffs. (2) The digestion of lucerne hay by bovines would seem to improve with age in these animals.
