Studies on lignin and related compounds in forage and in animal excreta.

By Frederick John. Sowden


A study has been made of the lignin of forage and feces with the following results. A method has been developed for pre-extracting feces samples for the lignin determination without drying the sample. This results in a lower yield of lignin having a lower percentage of nitrogen. The methoxyl and nitrogen contents of lignin from feces have been determined and compared with those of the lignin from the forage from which the feces is derived.[...
