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.
