Abstract: SUMMARY The objectives of this trial were to evaluate intake and nutrient digestibility, weight gain, and carcass characteristics of grazing lambs supplemented with increasing dietary inclusion of castor bean meal (CBM). Thirty-six Santa Inês-crossed, non-castrated, 120 ± 15 d old lambs (initial BW = 21.8 ± 3.4 kg) were randomly allotted to 1 of 4 dietary treatments. The treatments consisted of 4 levels of soybean meal substitution with lime treated CBM (0, 33, 67, and 100%) on the DM basis. The experimental d… Show more

“…The replacement of soybean meal with DCM did not influence the cattle's performance, possibly due to the adequate intake of protein and energy provided by the diets including DCM. Freitas et al (2017) and Araújo et al (2021) also did not observe an effect of including DCM in the supplement on the performance of meat sheep and grazing beef cattle, respectively. In the present study, average daily gain was higher than the 0.50 kg d -1 estimated in the formulation of the diets.…”
