Abstract

 

The objectives of this experiment was to evaluate the carcass merits of Farta sheep and to evaluate the effect of concentrated feed on carcass quality of Farta sheep fed on different concentrated mixture with hay as basal diet. The experiment was conducted using a randomized complete block design (RCBD) with five treatments and five replications. Blocking was based on the initial body weight of sheep. Twenty five Farta sheep with yearling age and average initial was 21.45 kg used for the feeding trial were randomly assigned to five treatments. The chemical compositions of the experimental rations indicated that T5 was highest than (30.57%) other treatments, T4 (29.2%) and T3 (23.83%) CP contents, respectively. Feeding of Farta sheep in T2 was significantly (p<0.05) higher total daily dry matter intake (688 g/h/d), as compared to other treatments T1 (394 g/h/d), T5 (670 g/h/d) and T4 (676 g/h/d). Dressing percentage was not significantly different in each treatment. Generally, according to the results of this study feeding of yearling Farta sheep under T3 and T4 was efficient for biologically as compared to other treatments. We recommended, determine the level of concentrated feeds added in basal diet of yearling farta sheep for maximum body conformation.

Key words:
