Effect of flavomycin and dietary protein on wool growth

Effect of flavomycin and dietary protein on wool growth

Proceedings of the Nutrition Society of Australia 14: 140

For 9 weeks, Merino sheep were given pelleted diets with wheat chaff, lucerne chaff, fish meal and lupin seed 530:250:120:100 (diet A) or lucerne chaff, lupin seed and barley grain 600:250:150 (diet B) without or with, for each diet, 10, 20 or 40% flavomycin (bambermycin). Flavomycin did not affect liveweight gain or wool production of sheep given diet B.
