Feeding whole barley and a protein supplement at choice to early weaned lambs (15 kg initial weight) was studied in four experiments. In a first experiment whole barley and a pelleted soybean meal-based supplement (348 g crude protein (CP)/kg dry matter (DM)) were given either at choice (CH) or mixed in a 75/25 ratio (M) and compared to a pelleted compound feed containing the same ingredients and supplemented with barley straw (C).
