Economic analysis of feed for sheep: urea utilization to substitute broiler litter and diets based on corn and soyabeans



Economic analysis of feed for sheep: urea utilization to substitute broiler litter and diets based on corn and soyabeans



Ciencia Rural 34(2): 493-498



The objective of the present paper was to estimate the economic feasibility of using urea in two feed supplements: standard ration and chicken litter. This feed supplement was combined with elephant grass to feed confined Santa Ines sheep (n=20 rams and 20 ewes) for a 70-day period. We adjusted the production function using the experimental data to determine the maximum net income, the time of slaughter and the maximum period to confine the animals when the net income was set to zero.
