Abstract
Measures of ruminal digestibility of fiber constituents are usually considered as truly estimates. However, vegetable feeds are subjected, during its rumen residence, to a microbial contamination, which is especially high in rich fibrous feeds. Therefore, errors may occur if the fiber determination methods are not able to remove this contamination, as it is normally assumed.
