17. The influence of type and timing of protein supplementation on wool growth and protein synthesis in the skin of young Merino sheep.

There is limited evidence that the response in wool growth resulting from feeding protected protein supplements continues after the feeding has stopped. Feeding such proteins, alternated with traditional supplements, may increase wool growth as much as continuous feeding but at a lower cost. A...
