Homeorhetic hormones, metabolites and accelerated growth

Homeorhetic hormones, metabolites and accelerated growth

South African Journal of Animal Science 13(1): 76-78

Six newly-weaned Karakul ewes 12-14 weeks old were used to investigate the metabolic and hormonal changes during accelerated growth. Three lambs were allowed to retain their fat tails in order to estimate the possible influence of adipose tissue on the metabolism of the hindquarter during growth and the 3 others had their tails surgically removed. Two lambs acted as controls, one with a tail and one without; the remaining 4 were subjected to a maintenance diet for 2 weeks.
