• Measuring cottonseed hull passage by white-tailed deer

      Schultz, S. R.; Johnson, M. K. (Society for Range Management, 1992-01-01)
      Cottonseed hull fragments were identified in feces collected for the first 14 of 17 days after ingestion of 1 g cottonseed hulls by each of 4 adult nude white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus). Acclimation periods for deer forage evaluation trials should extend at least 14 days prior to food item evaluations to ensure passage of previously consumed fibrous plant materials.
