Abstract: Research data are provided about the effect of various dosages of vitamin A (retinol acetate) on the metabolism and localization of the protein in the organism of experimental animals (fattened bull-calves), that is, conversion of proteins in the diet into the main nutrients of the edible portion of the carcass (cuts) of bull-calves fed on diets with bagasse pellets. It has been found that vitamin A preparations are to be introduced into such diets; in the experiment, the authors used retinol acetate with the biological activity of 1 mln IU in 1 g, so as to make their content in the diets about 25 – 27 thous. IU per 100 kg of live weight (the optimal dosage, depending on the body weight of the animal during the experiment). This helps improve the average daily live weight gain of bull-calves by 11.7 %, of the carcass weight – by 9.2 %, including flesh – by 11.1 %. In the flesh of the carcass, the content of protein increased by 15.4 %, of fat – by 15.2 %, and of energy – by 8.2 %. The conversion ratio of feed protein to food protein in the meat part of the carcass increased by 1.33 %, of feed energy – by 1.2 %. Index Terms:
