Intake and rumination behaviour in sheep. 1. The effect of feed structure on rumination behaviour in wethers



Intake and rumination behaviour in sheep. 1. The effect of feed structure on rumination behaviour in wethers



Archiv fur Tierernahrung 35(1): 53-59



Each of 8 pelleted or loose mixtures of from 15 to 55% ground or chopped straw and concentrate was given in constant amounts to 2 adult wethers for 2 periods of 24 h. Proportion of straw affected rumination behaviour most clearly. Especially with only 13% crude fibre in DM the ruminating time, proportion of true rumination time, number of rumination cycles and periods and rumination frequency per day, per cycle or per min true rumination time were clearly reduced.
