- ... An in vitro gas production technique, where equine faeces was the source of microbial inoculum, was used to determine the effect of particle size (ground vs. unground) on the in vitro fermentation of high-temperature dried lucerne (L) and molassed sugar beet pulp (SB). Two experiments were conducted; in experiment 1, unprocessed (U) L and SB or ground L and SB (G; to pass through a 1mm dry mesh sc ...
