Plasma or urine). Having calculated faecal endogenous Ca (FECa), calcium absorption coefficients are than derived as follows: Ca absorption coefficient = Ca intake Ϫ (Faecal Ca Ϫ FECa) Ca intake The technique is sometimes modified by giving the radioisotope orally and intravenously, either sequentially to the same animal or simultaneously to matched groups. g. 45Ca and 47Ca), they can be given simultaneously by alternative routes to the same animal. g. iron, zinc and copper). The term ‘comparative radioisotope balance’ technique more accurately describes a further modification, in which retention of the radioisotope is measured in a whole-body monitor and route of excretion ignored.

Mineral content varies greatly with the source materials from which they are made and with the processing methods employed. Thus blood-meal, liver-meal and whale-meal contain only 2–3% total ash and are low in calcium and phosphorus, but they can be valuable sources of iron, copper, selenium and zinc. Commercial meat-meals and fish-meals, on the other hand, are usually rich in calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and zinc, depending on the proportion of bone that they contain. The ash content of meat- and bone-meals varies from 4 to 25% and most of this ash consists of calcium and phosphorus.
