Data on growth and body measurements from records of 182 Awassi lambs, born during 1982-83, were analysed. Equations were estimated to predict body weight and total body weight gain from the measurements studied. Generally, 50% of the variation in birth weight, weaning weight and total body weight gain was due to differences in body measurements.
