1. Six closely shorn sheep were given brome grass (Bromus inermis) pellets at 1 h intervals and maintained at ambient temperatures of --I to Idegree and 18--21degrees for 28 d. Measurements of digestion were made during the last 10 d of temperature exposure. 2. Cold exposure resulted in a reduction in apparent dry matter (DM) digestibility from 0-482 to 0… CONTINUE READING
