Inclusion of dehydrated broiler litter in Friesian calves diets. 1. Effect on digestibility, body weight gain and feed conversion

Inclusion of dehydrated broiler litter in Friesian calves diets. 1. Effect on digestibility, body weight gain and feed conversion

Annals of Agricultural Science, Moshtohor 33(1): 137-145

15 male Friesian calves (mean body weight 189 kg, 254 days old) were divided randomly into 3 groups, A, B and C, fed, respectively, 0, 25 and 50% broiler litter in place of concentrates, and slaughtered when they reached 400-450 kg liveweight. Broiler litter contained relatively high levels of CP, crude fibre (CF), ash and nitrogen-free extract (NFE) (23.61, 16.76, 20.69 and 37.01%, respectively), while ether extract (EE) was 1.93%.
