Abstract

Behavioral characteristics of supplemented (S; 23% crude protein, 3.41 meal DE/kg) and nonsupplemented ewes grazing native New Mexico rangeland were monitored from December 1983 to August 1984. Supplemental feeding did not appear to improve overall production by S ewes. Slower weight gains for S ewes during breeding may have resulted from reduced grazing time noted for this period. -from Authors
