Feed intake and weight gain of lambs of the Fiji Fantastic sheep fed concentrate mixtures of varying energy and protein levels



Feed intake and weight gain of lambs of the Fiji Fantastic sheep fed concentrate mixtures of varying energy and protein levels



Journal of Animal and Veterinary Advances 5(5): 364-372



This study was conducted to investigate the effects of concentrate mixtures with varying protein and energy levels on the voluntary feed intake, growth rate and nutrient utilization of lambs. 30 lambs (15 rams and 15 ewes), aged 4-5 months with a pre-experimental mean body weight of 20.9+or-0.5 kg, were divided into 5 treatment groups of 6 animals each (3 ewes and 3 rams) in a 2x5 factorial randomized complete design experiment. The experiment lasted for 84 days.
