Two experiments were conduced in which White Italian geese were fed diets containing large proportions of ground cereals: maize, oats, barley or rye; dried grass, dried sugar beet pulp, field bean or pea as well as low-glucosinolate rapeseed oilmeal, from var. Jantar. The highest body weight gains Were obtained when ground oats and rapeseed oilmeal were included in the diet, the lowest, when dried beet pulp and rye were given. Favourable growth parameters go together with higher dry matter content and pH of intestinal digesta. A diet of high proportion of oats and beet pulp lowered the serum cholesterol level in the geese, a diet with high proportion of rapeseed oilmeal lowered the level of inorganic phosphorus and potassium in blood serum of geese.
