Behaviour of Kazakh White-headed hornless and horned calves in relation to dietary energy level

, : Behaviour of Kazakh White-headed hornless and horned calves in relation to dietary energy level. Sibirskii Vestnik Sel' skokhozyaistvennoi Nauki ( 3): 61-64

Hornless and horned Kazakh Whiteheaded cattle were given additional roughage (6-8 kg/day) to increase energy content of the diet. Digestibility of DM and organic matter was increased by 2% and that of fat and fibre by 5.6 to 6.0%; simultaneously the time spent on mastication of feed, quantity of rumination, number of chewing movements per regurgitated bolus and the overall feeding activity increased.
