Interrelationship between metabolism of tritiated water, 22sodium and dry matter intake by beef cattle consuming wheat straw and poultry litter in free choice.

Abstract

1. Metabolism of tritiated water and 22sodium was studied in six beef cows under Mediterranean summer conditions in order to find whether the turnover of these tracers can be used to evaluate pasture intake. 2. The diet of the cows included ad libitum access to two components which were given separately in different troughs: one was poultry litter and the… (More)
