SEASONAL FEATURES OF NUTRITION AND NITROGEN METABOLISM IN MOOSE
The seasonal concentration of nitrogen (N) and nitrogen metabolism in rumen digesta and blood serum were measured in two rumen fistulated moose. Concentration of N and nitrogen metabolism in the rumen and blood varied seasonally. Concentration of protein N and metabolic processes in rumen digesta were highest in spring through summer and lower in autumn; the converse was true in blood serum. These seasonal differences were related to the variation in nutritional content of seasonal forage.
