Effect of different levels of supplementary concentrates on ruminal degradability of sheep

Effect of different levels of supplementary concentrates on ruminal degradability of sheep

Journal of Shandong Agricultural University 33(3): 313-318

Six eight-month-old little-tail type Han rams with an average liveweight of 29.98 kg were fitted with permanent ruminal fistulae at least one month before the experiment. The experimental diets were composed of mixed concentrate and chopped maize stalk. The mixed concentrate was supplied at 150, 250, 350, and 450 g/day in each of the four experimental groups, respectively. Chopped maize stalk was fed ad libitum.
