Faecal NIRS to monitor the diet of Mediterranean goats

  • 2004
  • Issue: 5
  • Volume: 34
S. Landau, T. Glasser, L. Dvash and A. Perevolotsky Page: 76 - 80

A method to establish the diet of goats in ligneous environments is needed. Twelve Damascus yearlings were subjected to 12 test periods in which days 1-7 were for adaptation, intake was recorded on days 8-10 and faeces were grab-sampled on…
