In digestion trials at the Missouri Agricultural Experiment Station on feeding steers in the "Use of Food" investigations it has been found that 84- 65 percent of the total feed is digested while it was observed that considerable was present...
A study of the factors influencing the ability of the animal to digest its food
(University of Missouri, 1916)
The purpose of the digestion trials, to be discussed in this paper, was to determine the effect of various factors on the ability of the animal to digest its food. The object of these experiments is somewhat different from the great majority...
The coefficient of digestion as influenced by the plane of nutrition of the animal
(University of Missouri, 1914)
