Effects of Protein Supplementation

Researchers at West Virginia State University conducted experiments to determine the effects of by-pass protein on fecal egg count reduction and post-weaning growth of parasitized, grazing lambs. In the first experiment, spring-born Suffolk crossbred lambs were separated into three supplement groups: 1) alfalfa pellets; 2) corn and soybean meal; and 3) corn, soybean meal, and fish meal. In the second experiment, January-born Suffolk and Dorset lambs were separated into three supplement groups: 1) corn and soybean meal; 2) corn, soybean meal, and fish meal; and 3) corn, soybean meal, and fish oil. Lambs were supplemented at 1 percent of their average body weight. Parasitized lambs may have i
