Altogether 120 lambs of three widely different breeds of sheep, namely a fat-tailed type, known as the Pedi, a wool-producing breed, namely the Merino and a fast-growing dual-purpose breed, namely the S.A. Mutton Merino, were used in a comparative slaughter experiment to determine the influence of breed and feeding level on gross efficiency of energy utilization, feed conversion, digestibility and metabolizability of a specific diet. The lambs were hand-rearedfrom two days of age to eliminate differences in feeding level as a possible source of error.
