Influence of cotton-seed meal and barley grain supplements on intake, digestion, live-weight gain and wool growth in sheep fed NaOH-treated oat and wheat straw diets



Influence of cotton-seed meal and barley grain supplements on intake, digestion, live-weight gain and wool growth in sheep fed NaOH-treated oat and wheat straw diets



Journal of Agricultural Science, UK 108(1): 211-219



Growth and digestibility trials were conducted to investigate responses of young Merino X Border Leicester wether sheep to alkali-treated straws and supplements. Oat and wheat straw were coarsely milled, sprayed with NaOH solution and then sprayed with a solution containing N, S, P, Cu and Co, and mixed with powdered limestone. The treated straws were fed ad lib. with no supplement (0) or with 150 g/day of either cottonseed meal (CSM) or whole barley grain (B).
