- ... The biochemical mechanisms that limit voluntary intake of one-seed juniper by browsing ruminants are not well understood. Twelve Rambouillet ewes (78±2.3kgBW) and 12 Boer-Spanish does (54±1.4kgBW) were used in a split-plot sequence design to investigate the effects of adding protein, quebracho tannins (QTs), and polyethylene glycol (PEG) on one-seed juniper intake and preference and on ruminal VFA ...

- ... Plant secondary metabolites (PSM) and nutrients can influence patterns of feed intake of small ruminants. Their effects depend on the type and amounts of PSM and nutrients fed. We hypothesized that one-seed juniper intake of goats and sheep would change in response to seasonal variations of PSM concentrations and type and amount of CP fed. To test this hypothesis, we fed 12 does (46.7±1.25kg) and ...
