Use of the main minerals of ensiled maize by growing sheep

Use of the main minerals of ensiled maize by growing sheep

Six lambs, weight 28 kg, were adapted to eat only maize silage containing Ca 3.8, P 2.1, K 11.4, Na 0.25, Mg 1.3 and crude protein 85 g/kg DM. For the trial period of 10 days the silage, with urea added at 1% of DM to increase protein to 11.4%, was limited to 2.3 kg daily with 35.7% DM. Daily retention was Ca 0.39 and P 0.20 g, each about a third of the requirement for a gain of 140 g. Other retentions were K 2.37, Na 0.13, Mg 0.07 and N 4.0 g.
