Effect of melatonin and body condition on the response to teasing of Aragonese ewes


Effect of melatonin and body condition on the response to teasing of Aragonese ewes



ITEA Extra(22 (2)): 733-735



42 Aragonese ewes, with an average body weight and body condition score of 51.5 kg and 2.87, respectively, and which had been exposed to a ram for at least 2 months, were analysed. Ewes were fed 150 or 125% of a maintenance diet and given an ear implant of 18 mg melatonin (groups 1 and 2, respectively) or were fed at 150 or 125% and given no treatment (groups 3 and 4).
