The extent and complexity of nitrogen metabolism in the mammalian large gut (hind-gut) varies considerably between species and is influenced by the physiological age of the animal. It is most highly developed in herbivores and omnivores whose diets, post-weaning, ensure a fairly constant supply of fermentable materials to the lower tract. The present paper reviews some of these topics, with particular emphasis on recent findings in the sheep and pig.
