Various salts have been used in ruminant rations in attempts to reduce the incidence of urinary calculi. The relative effectiveness of 0.5 and 1.5% levels of ammonium chloride, calcium chloride, sodium chloride and calcium carbonate for the prevention of urinary calculi in sheep has been reported previously (South Dakota Sheep Field Day Reports, 1965). The studies reported herein were conducted to further determine the edegree of protection afforded sheep against urinary calculi by the feeding of various salts, and to determine their effect on excretion and retention of the minerals.
