Twenty-five male Shugor, 25 female Shugor, 25 male Watish and 25 female Watish lambs, individually fed for 57 days, were used to study post-weaning growth performance and carcass composition of these breed types when subjected to a period of intensive feeding. Means and standard error of means of daily gain on experiment were 191.0±5.81, 166.0±5.81, 150.0±5.81 and 134.0±5.81 g for Shugor males. Watish males, Shugor females and Watish females, respectively. The means and S.E. for feed conversion ratio(FCR) were 5.70±0.190, 7.47±0.190 and 8.00±0.190 in the same order. Shugor and male lambs had better gain (p
