Carcass Characteristics of Menz Ram Lambs Fed Grass Hay Basal Diet and Supplemented Wheat Bran and Lentil Broken Screening

 An experiment was conducted to evaluate carcass characteristics of Menz ram lambs fed grass hay basal diet and supplemented different combination of wheat bran and lentil broken screening. The treatments were T1 (30 g wheat bran 133 g lentil broken screening), T2 (235 g lentil broken screening only), T3 (285 g wheat bran only), and T4 (227 g wheat bran and 120 lentil broken screening). Twenty-four Menz ram lambs of 8 to 10 months of age were grouped into six blocks based on their initial body weight and treatments were randomly distributed to each block of four animals. Six animals per treatment were used for feed intake and body weight change evaluation. Five lambs from each treatment were randomly picked and slaughtered for carcass evaluation.
