Effect of type of cereal (barley vs. maize) on ingestion, weight gain and carcass characteristics of lambs fed on feed and straw or only on feed



Effect of type of cereal (barley vs. maize) on ingestion, weight gain and carcass characteristics of lambs fed on feed and straw or only on feed



ITEA Produccion Animal 97A(3): 204-216



The effects on lambs were studied of feed containing 75% barley or maize, with 20% soyabean meal, 2% molasses, and 3% vitamins and minerals on feed intake, growth rate and carcass characteristics (carcass weight, morphology, pH and chilling losses, commercial yield and fat and meat colour). There were no significant interactions or differences due to roughage supplementation.
