Use of nitrate and magnesium rich waters in desert sheep farming



Use of nitrate and magnesium rich waters in desert sheep farming



Indian Farming 37(10): 29, 31



A mixed flock of 150 Magra and 150 Marwari sheep were given well water without or with nitrate and magnesium 0.25 and 1.0 g/litre drinking water, respectively, in year 1, 0.5 and 2.0 g/litre in year 2, 1.0 and 4.0 g/litre in year 3, and 1.25 and 4.5 g/litre in year 4. Up to concentrations of nitrate 1.0 and Mg 4.0 g/litre in drinking water, there were no effects on reproductive performance or overall health of either breed.
