Abstract

When sheep are fed diets containing sufficient halogeton to supply 3.2% oxalate in the diet, water consumption is markedly increased, and sheep consume less of the halogeton diet. When water is restricted, there is a decrease in feed intake with the decrease becoming more pronounced with continued water deprivation as compared to control sheep. An association of water deprivation and halogeton poisoning in sheep is indicated.
