The total faecal output used as an indicator for the absorption of nutrients in veal calves and the influence of an extra iron supply of 5 ppm on this phenomenon

The total faecal output used as an indicator for the absorption of nutrients in veal calves and the influence of an extra iron supply of 5 ppm on this phenomenon

World Review of Animal Production 22(3): 3, 5, 19-22

Faeces were collected for 96 h weekly from 6 Dutch Friesian male calves fed on a commercial milk replacer differing in iron content by 5 mu g/g. The percentage of faecal DM seemed to be constant during the day. There is some evidence that extra Fe in the diet decreases total faecal output.
