Sheep were fed up to 7.5% by weight of fly ash in complete pelleted rations for 124 days. Among 34 elements determined in rations and animal tissues, selenium increased slightly in specific tissues and blood as a function of the percentage of fly ash in the ration. Selenium concentration in blood increased slowly as the time of feeding progressed. There was no significant effect from the inclusion of fly ash in the ration on quantity of feed consumed, animal weight gain, or in vivo ration digestibility.
