AbstractThe effect of saliva on esophageal fistula samples was minimal. Regression equations are presented which compare crude protein and crude fiber contents of esophageal fistula samples with those of forage of known composition. Squeezing esophageal fistula samples, air drying the solid portion, and treating the liquid portion with phenol will preserve samples where laboratory facilities are not available.
