Effect of energy and protein levels on feedlot performance and carcass characteristics of Mehraban ram lambs.

Abstract

Fifty four Mehraban ram lambs (6-to 8-month old, initial live weight 35.4 +/- 4.2 kg) were assigned to a completely randomized design consisting of 9 groups and were fed for 70 days with diets containing three levels of energy (2.3, 2.5 and 2.7 Mcal metabolizable energy per kg dry matter) and three levels of protein (10.5, 12.5 and 14.5 percentage in dry… (More)
