Abstract

The present study aimed to evaluate some physiological variables of thin tailed sheep and Garut
sheep fed by concentrate and mung bean sprout waste diet. The physiological variables included
rectal temperature, respiration rate, and heart rate. Six Javanese thin tailed sheeps (16.27±0.86
kg) and six Garut sheeps (10.68±1.82 kg) which aged less a year were selected for 4 treatments by
factorial design 2 x 2. The first factor was diet (concentrate and bean sprout waste) and the second
factor was kind of sheep (Javanese thin tailed sheep and Garut sheep). The sheep were fed
individually for a maintenance requirement on body weight. Ambient temperature, relative
humidity, and physiological variables were measured every morning before feeding during 8
weeks. The result showed that the physiological response of Javanese thin tailed sheep and Garut
sheep fed by concentrate and mung bean sprout waste diet showed no interaction (P>0.05). The
physiological response of sheep was not significantly different but the feed treatments had a
significant effect (P>0.05). Rectal temperature, heart rate, and respiration rate were still classified
as normal so the mung bean sprout waste diet can be used as an alternative source of protein to
substitute concentrate.
