Effect of body weight on carcass traits in Ossimi sheep



Effect of body weight on carcass traits in Ossimi sheep



Alex. J. agric. Res 18(1): 25-31



24 Ausimi lambs were given a diet containing a pelleted ration (1/4 kg/head) + hay ad lib. Half of these animals, chosen at random, were slaughtered at 18 mth of age, while the other half were fed hay only for 3 more months and then slaughtered.
