This experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of barley green fodder produced by hydroponics system on the performance of feedlot calves. [] Key Method In a completely block randomized experiment, 24 cross bred (Holstein× Local) male calves were assigned randomly to one of the two treatments (diets) that were either control (grain barley) or hydroponic barley green fodder (BGF) that was included to provide 22.8 percent of the total diet on dry matter basis.

The effect of feeding hydroponics maize fodder on growth performance and nutrient digestibility in cross bred calves
A study was undertaken to assess the effect of feeding hydroponic fodder maize on growth performance in cross-bred calves. Fifteen healthy cross-bred calves of three months age were selected and were
The Biological and Economical Feasibility of Feeding Barley Green Fodder to Lactating Awassi Ewes
HB can be used as feed for lactating sheep as cost of feed can be reduced by 42% and had positive effects on ewe’s health conditions, mortalities, conception rates and abortion.
Evaluation of hydroponics fodder as a partial feed substitute in the ration of crossbred calves
Feeding of hydroponics maize fodder as a partial feed substitute of calf starter on protein basis at seven per cent level improves the DM intake, total body weight gain, ADG and lowers the cost per kgBody weight gain.
Cows fed hydroponic fodder and conventional diet: effects on milk quality
Principal component analysis (PCA) revealed that milk quality for the Gozo farm was superior to that of the Malta farm, however, further studies are needed to determine the effects of different hydroponic fodder using a large herd size.
Study of the Hydroponic Barley Effect on the Performance of Feedlot of Calves in the Region Souss Massa (Southern Morocco)
The objective of this research is to investigate the effect of the introduction of hydroponic barley; produced as feed supplement in the ration, on the performance of feedlot calves. This study was
Nutritive and Economic Value of Hydroponic Barley Fodder in Kuroiler Chicken Diets
An experiment was conducted in Kampala to assess the nutritive and economic value of hydroponic barley fodder produced using locally available materials on the growth rateof Kuroiler chicken. One-day
Effect of feeding hydroponics maize fodder on digestibility of nutrients and milk production in lactating cows
It can be concluded that feeding of HMF to lactating cows increased the digestibility of nutrients and milk production leading to increase in net profit.
Production and Economic Feasibility of Hydroponics Maize Fodder on Performance of Piglets
An experiment was conducted to evaluate the effects of hydroponics maize fodder on growth and nutrient digestibility of weaned piglets from July 1st, 2017 to August 11th, 2017, for six weeks. The
Nutritive Value and Performance of Cereal Green Fodder Yield in Hydroponic System
This study was conducted to assess the nutritive value and performance of green fodder (GF) production in hydroponic system. A mixture of barley (100 kg) and corn (80 kg) seeds was prepared and grown
Feed Intake, Growth Performance and Digestibility of Nutrients of Goats Fed with Outdoor-Grown Hydroponic Maize Sprouts
The study aimed to determine the effects of feeding outdoor-grown hydroponics maize sprouts (HMS) on the growth performance and digestibility of nutrients in goats. Three treatment groups (n = 5),


Utilization of artificially grown barley fodder by sheep
Sole feeding of Fometa fodder did not support the expected production traits in the animals whereas feeding in conjunction with dry fodder improved its utilization.
Effects of dietary energy and starch concentrations for newly received feedlot calves: I. Growth performance and health.
The present data suggest that feeding the high-energy diet decreased the percentage of P. multocida and H. somnus pathogens in calves that received one or more antimicrobial treatments.
Evaluations of genotypexenvironment interactions of beef bulls performance-tested in feedlot or pasture.
Purebred Angus (n = 96) and Polled Hereford (n = 96) bull calves sired by bulls of either low or high yearling weight performance lines were assigned to either creep-fed or non-creep-fed treatment
Effects of corn processing, dietary roughage level, and timing of roughage inclusion on performance of feedlot steers.
Although increasing roughage during the feeding period increased feed intake in these trials, steer performance was not enhanced and ADG was not affected by concentrate level or corn processing.
Nutrient content of hydroponically sprouted barley
A 140-day feeding trial was conducted to evaluate the nutritive value of wheat containing 60% sprouted kernels. Groups of 10 yearling steers were fed a 60% wheat diet. The wheat fraction of the diet
Avaliação da silagem de capim papuã (Brachiaria plantaginea) por meio do desempenho de bezerros de corte confinados
No significant interaction was observed between roughage source and feedlot period for daily dry matter intake (DMI) and daily digestible energy intake (DEI), for daily weight gain (ADG), for feed conversion (FC), for energy efficiency (EE).
