Effect of feeding and method of rearing for the first 4 months of life on the chemical composition of the carcasses of lambs and composition of body lipids



Effect of feeding and method of rearing for the first 4 months of life on the chemical composition of the carcasses of lambs and composition of body lipids



Annali dell' Istituto Sperimentale per la Zootecnia 3(2): 125-136



For 4 months 8 Wurttemburg and 8 Sopravissana twin lambs were suckled on pasture with their ewes and 4 of each breed were suckled for 4 days then got cow's milk or a milk replacer until they had doubled their weight, followed by a starting concentrate to 2 months then a simple concentrate, with access to hay. Groups did not differ greatly in final weight or in chemical composition of 3 muscles sampled.
