A series of in vitro experiments were conducted to determine the influence of sucrose levels on protein synthesis, cellulose and dry matter digestion in substrates which contained starch and cellulose in the ratios of 1:2 or 2:1 and urea at the level of 4%. Sucrose was added at levels of 0, 3, 6, 9 and 12% of total substrate. Protein synthesis was determined according to the method of Lowry et al. (1951), but dry matter and cellulose digestion were determined according to the method of Crampton and Maynard (1938) as modified by Hershberger et al. (1955).
