Abstract

An in vitro gas production technique, where equine faeces was the source of microbial inoculum, was used to determine the fermentation kinetics of high-temperature dried lucerne (A) and molassed sugar beet pulp (SB) mixed in the following ratios; 100:0 (A), 80:20 (ASB1), 60:40 (ASB2), 40:60 (ASB3), 20:80 (ASB4) and 0:100 (SB). Total gas pool size increased linearly (P
