Thus, the experiment was designed to evaluate DM voluntary intake, apparent nutrient digestibility, nitrogen balance, and liveweight
changes by intact West African dwarf breed of rams, and later rumen DM degradability were carried out on the stover using rumen-fistulated West African dwarf (WAD) sheep to determine feed quality by sole feeding stover from six dual-purpose groundnut cultivars to the animals.

lamb prices have crashed following the reopening of English and Welsh livestock markets last week.
He said this was "adding insult to injury" for farmers who had seen liveweight
lamb prices slump by around 35p/kg during June alone.
Getting through tough times is about maximising sheep feed and putting more liveweight
on the stock we have," said Mr Yeomans, a stalwart of the FUW.

We carefully select these rams from within the breed's top 10% and this year 81% of the crop had reached 38kg target liveweight

On the other hand, the average liveweight
price of about 105p per kg for good quality lambs is a shade weaker than optimists had forecast.
