Calcium requirements of the young lamb. 1. Effects of different intakes of dietary calcium on liveweight gain, bone development, and blood serum calcium levels



Calcium requirements of the young lamb. 1. Effects of different intakes of dietary calcium on liveweight gain, bone development, and blood serum calcium levels



Australian Journal of Agricultural Research 24(2): 229-236



1. Four groups of male lambs were fed on liquid diets to give daily Ca intakes of 50, 250, 450 or 650 mg/kg liveweight from 5 to 70 days of age. Intake of DM, liveweight gain and serum Ca, but not feed conversion efficiency, were less in the lambs given 50 mg, but there was no significant difference among the lambs given 250 to 650 mg. Femur development in the lambs given 50 mg was inadequate, the bone was brittle and tended to fracture.
