The objective of this study was to evaluate commercially available sources of supplemental protein in diets for growing and finishing lambs. Supplements were selected to differ in protein in diets for growing and finishing lambs. Supplements were selected to differ in protein solubility and amino acid profile and were expected to be degraded at different rates in the rumen to furnish protein post-ruminally varying in dietary and bacterial origin. If the principles concerning these parameters reported by other investigators would be applicable, response in terms of growth and feed utilization would be a measure of the value of the supplements for productive purposes.
