Twenty-one peer-reviewed publications with 50 treatment means were included in the data set. The effects of EO as an additive in sheep diets were evaluated using random-effect models to examine the raw mean difference (RMD) between EO treatment (diets with EO inclusion as an additive) and control… CONTINUE READING
