The beneficial effects of magnetically treated Water on weight gain, meat quality and animal health for Friesian calves


The study was carried out on twenty-four Friesian calves aged 4-5 months of weights 115-125 kg. The study aimed to knowing the Effect of magnetically treated water in some blood parameter and the influence of these changes on animal health, quality and quantity of produced meat. In the experiment the calves were distributed into two groups: /8/ ones in each. All these animals were feeding with same feedstuff and the calves in the first group were watered with normal water (As control group), while the calves in the second group were watered with extremely magnetically treated water /1000/ Gauss. The experiment continued for six months and the calves were weighed once a month and blood samples were analyzed from all animals in the experiment. The results showed a significant increase (P< 0.05) in the count of red blood cells, hemoglobin and hematocrit and an increase in the count of white blood cells (P< 0.05) in the second group. The results have shown a decrease in the level of cholesterol and Triglyceride and the level of weight gain of calves in the second group overweighed on average /131/ g daily. Besides, the results refer to improvement in the physiological and healthy conditions of the animals and production of higher amounts of meat as well as producing more healthy meat with lower content in cholesterol and Triglyceride.
