Effect of shelter and level of roughages in the ration on physiological and growth responses of crossbred calves



Effect of shelter and level of roughages in the ration on physiological and growth responses of crossbred calves



Journal of Veterinary & Animal Sciences 22(1): 54-60, 1991 ( )



The effect of shelter vis. a. vis open conditions and replacing part of concentrate ration with green leguminous fodder, on the physiological responses and growth of crossbred calves between six and 12 months of age, under a hot-humid climate was investigated. Rearing under open conditions increased the physiological reactions significantly (P lt 0.01). However, these increases were not physiologically meaningful to cause retardation of growth. Calves housed in the open and maintained on roughage oriented feeding recorded the maximum gains in body weight.
