Urea supplementation of roughage-based diets for cattle



Urea supplementation of roughage-based diets for cattle



J. Agric. Sci, 71: 137-144



Bullocks of between 175 and 290 kg liveweight were given long barley straw to appetite or chopped hay in restricted amount with supplements of barley, soya bean meal, urea or molasses given alone or in different mixtures. Urea added to straw did not affect intake of straw or rate of gain.
