The effects of water and food restriction on feed utilization, body weight changes and nitrogen balance were investigated in Sudanese desert goats given high or low quality forage. Nine male goats were employed in a 3x3 Latin square design where they were subjected to three treatments: ad libitum water and feed, ad-libitum feed/restricted water, and ad libitum water/restricted feed. These treatments were repeated using lucerne or sorghum hay. For both feed types dry matter intake (DMI) was not… CONTINUE READING
