Genetic parameters of feed intake and digestive efficiency in tropical sheep



Genetic parameters of feed intake and digestive efficiency in tropical sheep



Proceedings of the 7th World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production, Montpellier, France, August, 2002 Session 10: 0-4



Between and within-breed variations in feed intake and digestive efficiency, in terms of the percentage of feed dry matter (DM) retained in the body out of that consumed (ADMD), in 452 Menz and Horro sheep were estimated. Average daily concentrate DM was about 278 g/day in both breeds, whereas daily hay DM intake (HayDMI) was 520.3+or-4.4 in the Menz and 559.8+or-6.0 in the Horro (P<0.01) sheep.
