Effect of hybrid and mode of conservation of corn grain on weight gain of lambs and weaned lambs



Effect of hybrid and mode of conservation of corn grain on weight gain of lambs and weaned lambs



Zhivotnov"dni Nauki 34(7-8): 70-73



The effect of five maize hybrids and mode of conservation of grain by drying, ensiling and CCM on productivity and forage consumption was studied in two consecutive trials on lambs and weaned lambs of Danube fine wool breed. The animals were distributed of groups I to IV received grain of H 708 hybrid conserved as dry, CCM, ensiled whole and ground, groups V and VI - hybrid P 3183 and groups VII and VIII - Kn 666 hybrid, conserved as CCM and ensiled ground grain. The weaned lambs were distributed in three groups and received dry grain of H 708, P 3737 and Kn 666 hybrids. Average daily weight gain of lambs by groups was 192, 185, 192, 190, 203, 183, 192 and 190 g and of weaned lambs 184, 170 and 170 g. The weight gain and consumption of forage in dry matter and corn grain obtained for the groups were similar indicating that the hybrids studied and the mode of grain conservation had no effect on productivity and forage efficiency in lambs and weaned lambs. The conservation of corn with cob (CCM) decreased grain consumption by 3 to 14% per kg weight gain.
