Abstract

The applicability of the index substance - chromic oxide - to measure the palatability and digestibility, was studied with horses commercial diets in stabling condition. The animals were maintained in individual boxes and received ration containing 4g of chromic oxide. The faeces were quantitatively collected in 24 hours periods to obtain representative sample for 24 hours and 5 days total periods. The average digestibility coefficients (88.35% and 89.59%) showed a high level of ration utilization.
