Factors limiting the intake of feed by sheep. 10. The effects of concentrate supplements on the voluntary consumption and digestion of a medium quality roughage



Factors limiting the intake of feed by sheep. 10. The effects of concentrate supplements on the voluntary consumption and digestion of a medium quality roughage



Australian Journal of Agricultural Research 39(2): 255-271



In a series of 3 experiments Border Leicester X Merino sheep were given a diet of chopped lucerne and wheaten hays with or without supplements of ground or whole wheat, oats and protein concentrates. Sheep were given free access to diets which were offered once daily or at 3-h intervals. Sheep with rumen fistulae were given supplements based on wheat, or glucose with or without buffer salts. Supplements equal to about 25% of voluntary intake decreased roughage intake.
