The effects of feeding white clover pellets and red clover hay on teat length, plasma gonadotrophins and pituitary function in wethers



The effects of feeding white clover pellets and red clover hay on teat length, plasma gonadotrophins and pituitary function in wethers



Journal of Agricultural Science, UK 82(2): 357-361



4 wethers were fed for 5 wk with a diet containing red clover hay or control diet. Mean teat length increased during red clover hay feeding from 9-10 mm to 12-13 mm in 2 wethers and to approx. 14 mm in the other 2 wethers, but returned to normal values by 20 days after red clover feeding. 6 wethers were fed for 4 wk with a diet containing white clover pellets or control diet.
