The objectives of this experiment were to determine the relative value of:
1. Protein supplements containing urea compared to soybean meal for pregnant ewes
2. Urea at the 5 and 10 percent levels in protein supplements
3. Wheat mids and dehydrated alfalfa meal in protein supplements containing urea at 5 and 10 percent level.
The results of three wintering trials with pregnant ewes are reported here as an aid to stockmen in evaluating production rations suitable to South Dakota conditions.
