Serra, Antonio and Pulina, Giuseppe and Brandano, Paolo (1992) Alfalfa hay digestibility in Sardinian does. Studi sassaresi: organo ufficiale della Società sassarese di Scienze mediche e naturali.

A feeding trial was carried out on ten Sardinian does. 5 does (group F) were fed with alfalfa hay and the other 5 (group C+F) with alfalfa hay + 0.6 kg of concentrate to measure the digestibility of these feeds. The digestibility was measured by marker method (lignin) and by the enzymatic method. The marker method showed that the addition of concentrate to the hay increased the OM digestibility. The second method showed similar results. The Authors calculated a regression equation between "in vivo" and "in vitro" digestibility of OM in the C+F group. The changes in lignin composition before and after the digestion were analyzed.
