From weaning at 45 days old, Spanca wether sheep were given a normal diet without or with 15 to 20% or 34 to 37% of plant protein replaced by urea. In a second experiment Corriedale wethers were given from 65 days old for 94 days a normal diet without or with 17 or 23% of plant protein replaced by maize stalks treated with ammonia. In both experiments mean daily gain, which was 188 to 205.5 g, did not differ significantly among groups.
