The performance and carcass fat characteristics of lambs fattened on concentrate diets. 2. Effects of cereal source and of vitamin E and cobalt supplementation on early-weaned lambs and on store lambs

2. Concentrate diets as meal based on maize or barley with or without a supplement of vitamin E (20 iu/kg) or Co (cobalt sulphate 10 mg/kg), were given to 32 young early-weaned Finnish Landrace-Galway X Dorset Horn lambs and to 16 Suffolk X Cheviot store lambs. Liveweight gain and efficiency were greater for the young lambs than for the stores. Maize was better than barley for liveweight gain and feed conversion in both groups.
