Description

Urea molasses multi-nutrient block (UMMB) has been widely used as a feed supplement to balance nutrition of ruminants fed low-quality forage-based diets in tropical and sub-tropical areas. This study was carried out to determine the effects of UMMB in reducing liveweight loss of both yak cows and calves grazing on low-quality pastures during winter on the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau, China.
