Twelve ruminally cannulated wethers (four with duodenal cannulas) were used in a replicated 4 x 4 Latin square to investigate effects of barley variety and restricted vs ad libitum intake on site, rate, and extent of digestion. Diets were based on Ottus (52.7% starch; O) or Steptoe (56.7% starch; S) barley fed at either 90% of prestudy ad libitum feed intake (R) or ad libitum consumption (A). Diets were formulated to be equal in starch content (38%). Periods consisted of 10 d for adaptation… CONTINUE READING
