Extract

A randomized block experiment has been carried out with 42 Friesian heifers over a 2-year period to examine the protein and energy requirements in late pregnancy. Rations were based on good quality hay fed to appetite plus various quantities and combinations of oats and decorticated groundnut meal. Minerals were given daily.
