Use of some body measurements for evaluation of rumen and intestinal fill before slaughter



Use of some body measurements for evaluation of rumen and intestinal fill before slaughter



Zeszyty Naukowe Akademii Rolniczej im H Koataja w Krakowie, Zootechnika ( 26): 23-29



A group of 36 bulls were fed from 150 to 500 kg liveweight on maize silage, hay and concentrates. Liveweight and girth before and 24 h after fasting were 496.8 and 472.7 kg, and 216.6 and 205.1 cm, respectively. Weight of digesta after fasting was 66 kg.
