Effects of dietary protein. 2. On some blood consitituents in Yankasa ewes

Effects of dietary protein. 2. On some blood consitituents in Yankasa ewes

Bulletin of Animal Health and Production in Africa 34(2): 119-121

Groups of 6 Yankasa ewes 9 months to 1 year old were given for 6 months a diet based on concentrate and hay with 15, 7.5 or 4% crude protein. Mean final haematocrit was 34 +or- 1.0, 29.5 +or- 2.5 and 24.0 +or- 2.5%, respectively; differences among the groups were significant. Haemoglobin values were 10.95, 9.2 and 8.7 g/100 ml but did not differ significantly.
