Effects of dietary supplements of copper and sulfur on copper metabolism and digestion of roughage in sheep fed high molybdenum diet



Effects of dietary supplements of copper and sulfur on copper metabolism and digestion of roughage in sheep fed high molybdenum diet



Journal of China Agricultural University 9(3): 31-35



This study was conducted to determine the effect of tribasic copper chloride supplement on the copper metabolism in sheep fed with a high molybdenum (Mo) diet. Four wethers (Poll Dorset x Small Tail Han-yang) with permanent rumen fistula were used in a Latin square experimental design. The high Mo diet contained 12.55 mg/kg DM of Mo. Copper (Cu) was added in the diet as tribasic copper chloride at doses of 0, 6, 12 and 18 mg/kg DM.
