The efficiency of feeding buffalo calves on low level of concentrates

The efficiency of feeding buffalo calves on low level of concentrates

Proceedings of the third Egyptian British conference on animals, fish, and poultry production, 7-10 October 1989, Alexandria, Egypt: 571-580

Buffaloes, 16 months old, in groups of 40 each were fed on a diet of natural rice straw (NRS) and a concentrate feed mixture (CFM); NRS plus CFM and urea-supplemented rice straw (SRS); or NRS plus CFM plus urea-treated rice straw (TRS). SRS was obtained by mixing rice straw with a solution containing urea, vitamins and a mineral mixture. Average daily body weight gain was 680, 804 and 819 g, respectively.
