2012 IBC Protein supplementation using urea

Urea is not protein, but for the ruminant (cattle, sheep, deer, goats) it does have the potential equivalent of 281% crude protein under certain circumstances. The items to consider bringing this about deal with the animal’s age, the quantity of fermentable carbohydrates provided in the animal’s diet and the other forms of protein in the diet of the animal. Careless use of urea as a feedstuff can bring on poor feed efficiency, metabolic troubles (especially seen at parturition in cows), central nervous system disorders and death.
