  • ISSN : 1810-9799



A trial was conducted to determine the efficiency of utilization of rumen inert fat as a supplementary energy source for reproducing South African Mutton Merino (SAMM) ewes (n = 56) grazing wheat stubble. The ewes were randomly divided into four groups of 14 ewes each, with every group representing a treatment. The wheat stubble paddock was divided into four paddocks of equal sizes, and the ewes grazed these paddocks at a stocking density of 4.6 ewes/ha from the 1 November 1992 until May 1993 after the break of the season.
