1. The significance of blood urea-nitrogen transfer to the rumen was examined in sheep given alkali-treated wheat straw supplemented with 3.5 (diet A), 5.9 (diet B) and 11.6 (diet C) g urea-N/kg dry matter (DM). 2. Mean voluntary intakes of DM (g/d) were 897, 1149 and 1225 for diets A, B and C respectively, indicating significant (P less than 0.05) intake responses to urea supplementation. Digestion studies were conducted at 90% of voluntary intake. Dietary N intakes (g/d) were 7.1, 11.5 and 18… CONTINUE READING
