Studies on the effect of prolonged water deprivation on Marwari sheep under arid conditions



Studies on the effect of prolonged water deprivation on Marwari sheep under arid conditions



Haryana Agricultural University Journal of Research 8(2): 136-142



The effect of water deprivation under arid conditions was studied in 2 groups of 10 Marwari ewes. The ewes grazed on natural pasture in India. The control group had free access to water and the experimental group had no drinking water. During summer the deprived group lost 34% of liveweight in 3 days and in winter they lost a similar percentage of weight in 36 days. Winter average air temperature was 18.5 deg C and summer temperature 33.3 deg.
