Young Watish lambs grazing berseem grow at 148 and 105 g/day for males & females respectively, over a 20-week period. The provision of various concentrate supplements marginally increased live-weight gains but this practice was not recommended as being of economic value. Hot carcass weight of young Watish lambs was highly related to live-weight at slaughter but killing-out percentage was less so. The practical implications of these results are discussed.
