Effects of feeding protected unsaturated fat, growth hormone treatment and feeding level on mammary growth of prepubertal ewe lambs



Effects of feeding protected unsaturated fat, growth hormone treatment and feeding level on mammary growth of prepubertal ewe lambs



Journal of Dairy Science 71(Suppl. 1): 230(P333)



40 ewe lambs were grouped into four treatment groups: fed a standard, high-energy diet, ad lib. (A); fed as group A, but treated with exogenous bovine somatotropin (GH) (0.1 mg/kg bodyweight/day; G); fed the standard ration in restricted amounts (R); or fed a ration including a formaldehyde-protected fat supplement (30% of dry matter), high in linoleic acid content, ad lib. (S). Rations were isonitrogenous and isocaloric, and were fed from about 7 to 22 weeks of age.
