Effect of stocking density on productive performance and behaviour of artificially reared female kids

Effect of stocking density on productive performance and behaviour of artificially reared female kids

Zootecnica e Nutrizione Animale 21(2): 111-117

The effect of stocking density on productive performance and behaviour was studied in 30, 7-day-old Saanen female kids, artificially reared for 36 days in boxes on straw litter with spaces of 0.30, 0.22 and 0.12 msuperscript 2 (groups A to C). The goats were given mildly acidified milk substitute 3 times daily at 07.00, 14.00 and 18.00 h, from buckets. Liveweight and milk substitute intake were recorded on days 7, 25 and 42.
