1. Experiments involving 15N and 14C tracers were made in sheep consuming 800 g air-dry chopped lucerne (Medicago sativa) hay/d and providing 20.4 g N/d to study N and C flows within the caecal digesta and between the caecum, blood and rumen. 2. Continuous infusions of 15N tracers were made into the caecal ammonia, blood urea and rumen NH3 pools. The concentration and enrichment of caecal digesta NH3-N, caecal microbial N, caecal digesta non-urea, non-ammonia-N (NU-NAN), faecal NU-NAN, blood… CONTINUE READING
