“…Feed conversion did not differ significantly (P>0.05) in response to the levels of replacement of the roughage source, averaging 3.8:1. This ratio is close to the 4.26:1 observed by Bernardes et al (2015), who used high-grain feed in feedlot lambs. 1 1 = very poor, 5 = excellent.…”

“…Loin-eye area was larger in the lambs receiving the corn grain treatment (Table 2), and this can be considered a consequence of the higher growth rate (BERNARDES et al, 2015) and cold carcass weight of animals receiving that treatment. This may be viewed as a positive aspect regarding carcass quality, since, as stated by Cartaxo and Sousa (2008), an increase in loin-eye area will lead to larger amounts of muscle in the carcass.…”

“…Despite the distinct periods of confinement of the lambs on different treatments as a function of the observed differences in weight gain (BERNARDES et al, 2015), the animals were slaughtered at similar live weights. Therefore, the weights of neck, shoulder, ribs, and leg were higher (P<0.05) in the group fed the high-corn grain diet (Table 3), as they showed the best cold carcass yield and weight of all treatments, which mean heavier cuts from their carcass.…”

“…Considering the growing development of agricultural areas, intensifying animal production areas appears to be an interesting strategy. In this scenario, the practice of feedlotting has been increasingly adopted in sheep farming systems (Bernardes et al, 2015).…”
