Carcass composition and meat quality attributes were compared in yearling sheep and goats. After weaning at 3 months of age, the animals were maintained under stall fed condition up to 1 year of age. Throughout the study, the animals were maintained on ad libitum complete feed (50:50 roughage and concentrate). The yearling sheep had higher (P<0.05) pre(More)
AIMS To assess the effect of presence or absence of rumen protozoa on fermentation characteristics and enzyme profile in growing lambs. METHODS AND RESULTS Weaner lambs (G1, G2, G3, G4, G5 and G6 groups) were defaunated by oral administration of sodium laurel sulphate (at 8 g 100 kg(-1) body weight). The lambs of G4, G5 and G6 groups were refaunated. The(More)
An experiment was conducted to study the effect of presence or absence of rumen ciliate protozoa on nutrient intake, its utilization, rate of body weight gain and feed conversion ef®ciency of lambs in post-weaning phase of growth. Forty ®ve weaned Malpura lambs, divided into three equal groups (G1, G2 and G3) were either defaunated by periodic dosing of(More)
By careful choice of a catalyst (TiCLj or SnCl4), temperature, reaction time and mole ratio of the substrate to dichloromethylmethylether, it has been possible to obtain new functionalized formylated calix[n]arenes in the cone or partial cone conformation. Optimized general reaction procedures for obtaining mono-, di-, triand tetraformylated derivatives of(More)
Twenty 9-month-old crossbred calves were divided into 2 equal groups (A and B; n = 10). The feeding trial was conducted for 119 days to study the effect of concentrate supplementation on body immune response and blood metabolites in calves. The concentrate and roughage (wheat straw) ratio in the diet of Groups A and B was 60:40 and 30:70, respectively.(More)
The pre-weaning nutrient requirements for growth of lambs were assessed by feeding them on ad libitum creep mixtures with free suckling and free choice of Pala (Z. nummularia) leaves. Thirty six lambs (15 days old) were divided into three equal groups and fed creep mixtures containing high (HEHP), medium (MEMP) and low (LELP) levels of digestible energy and(More)
Mustard straw (MS) was soaked for 6 h in the solutions containing 0% (S0), 1% (S1) or 2% (S2) sodium hydroxide (NaOH) and 0% (H0) or 1.5% (H1) hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) following a 3 2 factorial design. The pH of the untreated MS (near neutral) was increased to more than 10 after treatment with NaOH (S1H0 and S2H0) or alkaline hydrogen peroxide (AHP; S1H1(More)
