Objectives: To evaluate crude glycerin as an energy source for finishing lambs and to determine the effect of sire breed on finishing lamb growth performance and carcass characteristics. In light of previous research, the hypothesis for this experiment was that glycerol would have an energy value similar to that of corn when fed in high concentrate diets to finishing lambs.
