An experiment was carried out to investigate the digestive kinetics of various even-chain alkanes adsorbed into different carrier matrices and to assess their potential use to estimate faecal output, herbage intake and rate of passage in goats. The carrier matrices (alkanes) tested were cellulose powder (C24 and C28 alkanes), paper bungs (C26 alkanes), Gilson paper filters (C30 alkanes) and shredd ...
