Abstract:
Thirty-nine male lambs of the Assaf dairy breed were assigned shortly after weaning, at 17.5 kg liveweight, to one of the following three nutritional treatments: I, a high energy concentrate mixture (CD); II, a diet in which 60% of the concentrate was replaced by a combination (1:1) of wheat straw+poultry litter containing 100 ppm copper (UTS) and III, as II, but the straw was treated with 3.5% sulfur dioxide at 70°C for 72h (SO2-TS). The diets were fed ad libitum for the entire growth experiment, which lasted 110-117 days. Daily gains were 266, 356 and 363 g for the UTS, SO2-TS and CD rations, respectively. The SO2-TS lambs were leaner than those of the CD ration and their meat was accepted well. Sulfur dioxide-treated straw and poultry litter are suggested as complementary feeds and when given in a 1:1 combination can replace 60% of the concentrate in intensive-growth lamb rations. Dietary SO2-treated straw exerts a protective effect against copper toxicity in high-copper lamb diets. © 1988.
