Protein Supplementation of Low-quality Forage : Influence of Frequency of Supplementation on Ewe Performance and Lamb Nutrient Utilization 1

Abstract

Supplementation frequency (SF) of CP for ruminants consuming low-quality forage can be decreased to once every 7 d; however, no data are available describing the effects of decreasing SF to once every 10 d. Our objectives were to evaluate the influence of length of SF on forage intake, digestibility, N balance, digested N retained, and plasma concentration… (More)
