Abstract

We evaluated the effects of supplemental carbohydrate sources on the utilization of low- quality forage in continuous "artificial rumen" culture. Providing readily digestible carbohydrates (starch, glucose, and fiber) did not improve total diet digestion. In fact, starch and glucose depressed fiber digestion. Response to other simple sugars was variable.
