Abstract: The use of alternative foods, such as agroindustrial residues, for animal feeding aims to reduce production costs and increase animal productivity. Therefore, the objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of different levels of licury cake added to the diet of non-standardbred lambs (NSB). The study involved 20 male castrated NSB lambs, with an average age of 120±5 days and initial and final average weights of 25±2 kg and 34±2 kg, respectively; the lambs were kept in a feedlot and distributed in a com… Show more

“…However, the FT was lower in our treatments, ranging from 1.41 to 0.81 mm. On the other hand, Santos et al [ 1 ] reported a quadratic effect (p<0.05) on animal performance without changes in the FT of longissimus muscles when lambs were fed licuri cake.…”

“…The inclusion of 24% licuri cake in diets fed to lambs has led to a 39% reduction in intake and a decreased weight gain and average daily gain (ADG) [2]. On the other hand, a 17% inclusion of licuri has been reported to improve feed conversion and to increase ADG [3], and no changes in the dry matter intake (DMI) of lambs was observed with 16% inclusion of licuri cake [1]. In addition, the fatty acid profile of licuri oil is different from traditional oil sources; it is highly saturated, with high percentages of medium chain fatty acids (MCFA), mainly lauric and myristic acids [4].…”

“…However, a decrease in lamb performance due to decreased dry matter intake was observed [240]. The lambs fed with 16% licuri cake had no changes in the dry matter intake [241]. Nonetheless, the addition of 24% licuri cake in the feed of lambs resulted in a 39% reduction in intake, decrease in weight gain, and average daily gain [242].…”

“…Additionally, the neutral detergent fiber in LC is as effective as that of hay (Daza et al, 2021). Researchers who replaced soybean meal (the main dietary source of protein) with LC in the diet of sheep described a decrease in nutrient intake and digestibility, performance, and carcass traits (Santos et al, 2015;Costa et al, 2016). More recently, studies have suggested the possibility of including up to 100 g/kg LC in high-grain diets for steers and goat kids (Silva et al, 2020;Silva et al, 2022).…”
