Eighteen growing Fiji Fantastic (FF) sheep (nine ram lambs and nine ewe lambs), 5-6 months old, pre-experimental average body weight of 25.6+or-0.82 kg were randomly divided into three groups of six and allotted to the treatments designated as A: Guinea grass (Panicum maximum); B: Guinea grass+concentrate mixture; and C: Guinea grass+crushed wheat grain in a completely randomized design experiment that lasted for 92 days.
