I am asking this question to help with my Lower sixth examinations. I have found out that approximately 80%is digested in the rumen, none in the small intestine and a further 5% in the large intestine. This knowledge further confused me as I was of the understanding that the large intestine was mainly for reabsorption of water, not organic materials. Please submit an answer as it would be greatly beneficial to my revision studies.
