Archivos de Medicina Veterinaria, Chile 11(2): 125



For 5 partially castrated lambs, 4 lambs with surgically induced cryptorchidism, 5 totally castrated lambs and 5 entire lambs, daily gains during a 59-day fattening period averaged 0.29, 0.24, 0.22 and 0.25 kg resp., the differences being non-significant. In the 4 groups, the amount of food consumed/kg gain averaged 3.6, 4.4, 4.1 and 3.8 kg; the differences between groups were not significant.
