While end-point in vitro techniques provide no information regarding the kinetics of feedstuff degradation they are generally simpler to conduct and require fewer inputs especially with respect to labour. In contrast systems, which permit degradation dynamics to be assessed, require that multiple measurements are made and be continued for a sufficient period to ensure that asymptotic values are reached. This study was therefore conducted to examine the variability that could be expected between short-term end-point in vitro degradability techniques and to compare some of the values with in sacco derived estimates.
