Effects of dietary zinc and copper supplementation on live weight gain, rumen protozoa and wool quality in Konya merino lambs



Effects of dietary zinc and copper supplementation on live weight gain, rumen protozoa and wool quality in Konya merino lambs



Veteriner Fakultesi Dergisi Istanbul 29(1): 21-31



The effects of supplementation of zinc (Zn) and copper (Cu) to the diet on body weight gain, rumen protozoa, and wool quality of 24 male Merino lambs were investigated. The animals were equally divided into 4 groups as control, Zn, Cu, and Zn + Cu.
