High-concentrate rations have been shown to have several advantages in large cattle feeding operations because they produce high rates of gain with low feed requirements. It has been a common practice to feed lamb rations with relatively high levels of roughage. However, lamb feeders might also benefit under many conditions if results similar to those with cattle fed high-concentrate rations could be obtained with lambs. Little research has been reported on the relative value for lambs of all-concentrate rations and those with low levels of roughage or roughage replacers such as oyster shells. Two experiments were conducted to study feedlot performance of lambs fed rations which contained oyster shells or various levels of hay.
