Five crossbred cattle with age ranging from 24 to 36 months and mean weight of 150kg werefed a total mixture ration in which citrus pulp pellets corresponded to 40% of the daily drymater intake. After 15 days of adaptation, the cattle received the diet containing citrus pulp for 30 days. The objective of this study was to detect possible changes caused by a dietcontaining citrus pulp pellets on clinical parameters such as rectal temperature, respiratoryand cardiac rates, capillary perfusion time, frequency of ruminal movements, and bodyweight. The cattle had increased frequency of ruminal movements and gained a daily averageof 860g during the experiment. All the other clinical parameters were within the normalreference values.
