Each period consisted of a 5-d adjustment period followed by a 2-d total collection of feces and then a 2-d collection of ileal digesta
. The dietary treatments included a corn-soybean-wheat bran basal diet (CTR), mixed organic acid 1 diet (MOA1; CTR+3,000 mg/kg MOA1), and mixed organic acid 2 diet (MOA2; CTR+2,000 mg/kg MOA2).
Determinacao do clearance de acidos graxos volateis na digesta
Improved tibia ash (Boling et al., 2000; Boling et al., 2001), enhanced P, Ca and N retention (Deepa et al., 2011), increased digestibility of total and phytate P (Woyengo et al., 2010), improved protein and P deposition (Sukria and Liebert, 2004) and significant interaction between CA and PHY on Enterococcus counts in the ileal digesta
(Aydin et al., 2010) was found in different studies with different combinations of CA and PHY.
A ruminant is well-known to regurgitate small portions of digesta
from the rumen and spend time re-chewing after they have finished their main meal.
Also, ileal digesta
samples were freeze-dried and finely ground (CBG5 Smart Grind; Applica Consumer Products Inc., Shelton, CT).

of piglets at 35 days of age fed with different additives (1).
Caecal torsion can lead to partial or complete obstruction to the flow of digesta
. The present paper describes caecal dilatation/ torsion and its surgical management in a cow.
The hydrolysis of the polysaccharide structure of the cell wall components causes this reaction, which results in an improvement of nutrients availability as well as in a reduction in digesta
viscosity and hence drier droppings and litter.
For example, turkeys have a larger intestinal diameter, more viscous digesta
, and a slower digesta
passage rate (i.e., longer retention time) than chickens .
kinetics in gazelles in comparison to other ruminants: Evidence for taxon-specific rumen fluid throughput to adjust digesta
washing to the natural diet.
While xylanases' ability to enhance digestibility of plant-based feed ingredients and to decrease digesta
viscosity is well-accepted, their affect on gut health and the intestinal environment continues to be an active area of scientific research.
On the other hand, the results in the present study indicated that bacterial populations (data was not presented) in the small intestinal digesta
were not affected by supplementation with thyme volatile oil.
