Studies on magnesium in ruminant nutrition. 7. Excretion of magnesium, calcium, potassium and faecal dry matter by grazing sheep



Studies on magnesium in ruminant nutrition. 7. Excretion of magnesium, calcium, potassium and faecal dry matter by grazing sheep



British Journal of Nutrition 21(3): 631-642



For part 6 see Abst. 4723, Vol. 37. 7. Two groups of 4 wethers, 2 and 7 years old, grazed the same pasture through two grazing seasons. Collections of faeces were total and of urine only partial; creatinine was used as an indicator of urine volume. The overall mean output of dry matter (DM) in faeces of young and old sheep was 509 and 387 g per day, respectively. Digestibility of herbage DM ranged from 81.1% in spring to 63.2% in winter.
