Abstract

The present study was conducted to search 200 million digits of π and 1 million digits of e for some pieces of numerically expressed information on ruminant agriculture. The results obtained were as follows. Pieces of numerically expressed information that were found in digits of π were as follows: (1) a string of data on weather condition, (2) a string of data on forage production related to growth days, (3) a string of data on correlation analysis between digestibility and lignin content of forages, (4) a string of data on digestibility improvement by ammonia treatment, (5) a string of data on silage fermentation characteristics of forages, (6) a string of data on forage protein degradation in the rumen, (7) a string of data on basic growth analysis of ruminants, (8) a string of data on economic aspects of ruminant agriculture, (9) a string of data on complementary bases related to DNA structure, (10) a string of data on bases for primers related to the detection study on rumen microbes. Pieces of numerically expressed information that were found in digits of e were as follows: (11) a string of data on bases encoding amino acids. It was suggested that some pieces of numerically expressed information on ruminant agriculture were found in digits of π and e.
