  • Abstract In this study, the influence of two feeding regimes on certain reproductive characteristics of young Dorper rams was investigated. Thirty-two Dorper rams were divided into two homogeneous groups. Rams in the first group ( n =16), 472.5±8.0 days old were fed ad libitum intensively on a diet (9.5 MJ ME/kg DM and 12.5% protein) for 7 weeks, while the second group ( n =16), 460.6±8.5-day-old rams were maintained on natural pastures and received lick supplementation (100 g/animal per day… CONTINUE READING
