    The applicability of the alkaline extraction method using a 5% potassium hydroxide (KOH) solution to predict organic matter digestibility (DOM) of ruminant feeds was examined.The predictive value of the assay was estimated using 110 feeds including dried grass (70), grass silages (33) and compounds (7) of known DOM determined on sheep (DOM).A fairly close relationships for all samples and forages between the in vitro organic matter digestibility and DOM estimates were found.
