Use of leucaena meal (Leucaena leucocephala) on the post-weaning lamb feeding during dry season


Use of leucaena meal (Leucaena leucocephala) on the post-weaning lamb feeding during dry season



Revista de la Facultad de Agronomia, Universidad del Zulia 22(1): 42-53



With the aim of evaluating the lambs performance on dry seasons and feeding with Leucaena leucocephala (LM), a trial was carried out in CENIAP experimental area, in Maracay, Aragua state, Venezuela. The treatments were: T1: hay + concentrated food (CF), T2: hay + 50% CF + 50% LM, T3: hay + LM. Seven lambs were used with an initial average weight 15.2 Kg and were fed with hay by 5% of their live weight (LW) and 200 g/animal/day of supplementary feed.
