Abstract

Abstract A study was carried out to examine the effects of a form of Prussian Blue, provided by indwelling rumen boli, on the tissue retention of dietary radiocaesium by sheep. A single bolus providing 20–24 mg PB d −1 achieved a 42% reduction in tissue radiocaesium content. Multiple boli were not successful due to their loss from the rumen. The preparation used did not affect the health and well being of the animals.
