The objective of the investigation reported herein was to determine if sodium hydroxide treatment of corn cobs and corn stover would render the energy in these low quality forages more available to ruminant animals and result in increased animal performance. Because animals fed the treated forages would consume higher than normal levels of sodium, this research was also designed to investigate possible interrelationship which may exist between sodium, potassium, and chlorine and the effects these interrelationships may have on animal performance.
