Addition of 1 kg straw (1.5 kg to 5th group) and 4 kg concentrated feed to all groups in 168 days fattening period, 1.group received barley + vetch silage ensilaged with crushed barley, 2.group received barley + vetch silage ensilaged with molasses, 3.group received straw with urea + apple pomace silage, 4.group received straw with urea + sugar beet pulp silage and 5.group received only crushed barley as ad-lib.

The values obtained in fattening period as daily average live-weight gain feed consumption on dry malter basis far 1 kg live weight gain (straw + concentrate + silage or crushed barley), dressing percentage of cold carcass and kidney-pelvis fat weight are in 1.group 1039 g, 8.04 kg, % 57.8 and 3.57 kg; in 1.group 1122 g, 7.49 kg, % 56.4 and 3.10 kg; in the 3.group 1162 g, 7.35 kg, % 57.1 and 3.52 kg ; in the 4.group 1156 g, 7.29 kg, % 57.3 and 2.80 kg; in the 5.group 1287 g, 6.64 kg, % 58.9 and 4.80 kg, respectively.
