The thesis provides a review of the literature concerned with food intake regulation and digestion in the ruminant, and with the utilization of nutrients for milk production in the dairy cow. The survey identified that benefits on food intake and milk production might accrue through the treatment of cereal grains with acidified formaldehyde solution prior to feeding. The main part of the thesis reports a series of 8 experiments.
