Abstract

Squeezing masticate samples to remove excess saliva skews forage nutrient composition of high quality, vegetative grass. Lower quality grass or harvested hay is less affected. Mastica­tion increases ash content. Pre-collection diet of fistulated animals has no effect on nutrient content of the masticate.
