Abstract
Lamb fed 2% urea treated sago fibre and corn at 1.5 : 1 ratio (sago fibre + corn) and supplemented with fishmeal at 0, 50, 100, 150 g/head/day, gained 68.6, 139.6, 158.6 and 166.3 g/day, respectively. A simple feed cost analysis indicated that the sago with supplementation of fishmeal at 50 g/head/day could be an efficient and economic diet for sheep. The result showed that energy and protein supplements are necessary for reasonable performance of the sheep fed on urea treated sago fibre.
