Effect of ionophore enriched UMMB on feed intake, nutrient utilization and growth of crossbred calves


Effect of ionophore enriched UMMB on feed intake, nutrient utilization and growth of crossbred calves



Indian Journal of Animal Sciences 74(4): 424-427



ISSN/ISBN: 0367-8318

Male crossbred calves (n=20) were divided into 4 groups of 5 each. The animals of Groups I and II were fed a concentrate mix and a monensin (30 mg/day/animal)-supplemented concentrate mix, respectively, along with wheat straw ad libitum, while Groups III and IV were fed wheat straw ad libitum with 70% concentrate mix of their requirement and had free access to a urea-molasses mineral block (UMMB) prepared through cold process with or without ionophore (monensin).
