A.S. Series 69-52
Three experiments were conducted to determine if measurable urea-nitrate interrelationships exist in sheep under feedlot conditions, and the extent of nitrogen utilization from urea and nitrate by sheep fed rations containing suboptimum quantities of protein. Dietary conditions imposed provided for the simultaneous adaptation of lambs to urea and sodium nitrate (experiment 1); an exposure to sodium nitrate without prior adaptation after lambs has been brought to a full feed on a ration containing urea (experiment 2); and the use of soybean meal, urea and sodium nitrate independently as protein supplements to rations providing suboptimum levels of crude protein (experiment 3).
