Abstract
In the course of extensive digestibility work at this station, the need became obvious for more critical studies into the effects of interaction of one component of the diet with the other constituents. The results of giving sheep fairly readily available carbohydrate supplements with some of the very coarse roughages so common in many parts of East Africa were conflicting. That interaction does occur under such feeding conditions is of course well known, but the excessive degree found to occur in local studies made it desirable to look further into this effect. In the course of such work information became available on the digestibility of the proximate constituents of the diet at various points along the alimentary tract and it is with this part of the work that this paper deals.
