Data on the digestibility of Australian feeds for horses are not extensive and it has been recognised that more are required, especially for pasture species (McMeniman 1996). To obtain these data from in vivo digestion trials would be both time consuming and expensive. A reliable in vitro digestibility system would allow for the generation of significant amounts of data at relatively low cost. Aufrere (1982) described an enzymatic in vitro digestion system and Miraglia and Tisserand (1985… CONTINUE READING
