Abstract

The apparent digestibility of a number of Queensland fodders was determined. The nutritive value was assessed directly for both roughages and concentrates, using 2-3-year-old Merino wethers housed in metabolism crates. The studies reported here were conducted to ascertain the feeding value of important fodders in terms of digestible protein, total digestible nutrients, metabolizable energy, and starch equivalent.
