Abstract
Restricting the water intake increased significantly the digestibility of the organic matter of the diet in Hereford steers, but the increase in Zebu steers was small and 110t significant. Changes in the freezing point of rumen contents were possibly due to increased production of saliva when water was restricted, which in turn may have favoured fermentation a11d consequently digestibility.
