Abstract:The purpose of this work was to compare the coefficients of nutrient and energy digestibility in the mink and European polecat. The experiment was performed on five male standard mink (group I) and five male European polecats (group II). The animals were placed in single cages adapted for quantitative feces collection, and fed diets for mink. The ration was composed of standard feed components available on the local market in NE Poland. A five-day proper experimental period was preceded by a five-day preliminary period. Feed and feces samples were frozen. The nutrient content was determined by the Weende method in the entire collection. Nutrient and energy digestibility were calculated by the balance method. The digestibility levels of total protein and crude fat in mink and polecats were comparable and showed no statistically significant differences. The level of carbohydrate assimilation was statistically higher in polecats than in mink
