MARAFON, F. et al. Effect of homeopathy on performance of feedlot steers feed with diets containing 100 % or 48 % concentrate. Arch. zootec. [online]. 2014, vol.63, n.241, pp.199-202. ISSN 1885-4494.

The experiment aimed to evaluate the daily intake of dry matter and performance of feedlot finished young bulls with different inclusions of concentrate and homeopathy on the diet. Thirty two young Charolais bulls, coming from the same herd, with mean age of 12 months and average weight of 323 ± 5 kg were used. Animals eating levels of 48 % of concentrated showed better weight gain and feed conversion with homeopathy. The homeopathy has not showed positive response in animals finished in feedlot with 100 % concentrate diet.

Keywords : Feed conversion; Weight gain; Pituitary gland.
