Reports results of an experiment conducted to compare sesame cake with cottonseed when used as sources of supplementary protein in terms of their capacity to support increased growth rate of weaned N'Dama bulls. Observations were made of water intake and diurnal fluctuations in body temperature to compare with information published in earlier reports that N'Dama cattle may require less water and tolerate greater variation in body temperature than other breeds of cattle. Chemical composition of sesame cake and cottonseed cake, body weight gain and rectal temperature of cattle were also examined.
