Seventy male lambs were assigned to five dietary treatments. The first treatment contained 75.1% barley (whole grains), 11.5% wheat bran, 12% soya bean oil meal, 0.5% urea, and 0.9% dicalcium phosphate, salt, trace minerals and vitamins. To each ration of the other four treatments, olive pulp was incorporated instead of barley at a level of 10%, 20%, 30% and 40%, respectively. The lamb feeding trail extended for 70 days. Average initial liveweights for all groups of lambs ranged between 19.2 to 20.7 kg whereas the averages of final liveweights were: 32.5, 35.8, 31.7, 30.0 and 27.6 kg for each of the five groups respectively. Means of daily gain were: 169, 226, 176, 151, and 120 g per day for each of the five treatments respectively, with mean1572 differences being significant only for the second and fifth. This means that adding olive pulp at 10% level improved, whereas at 40% deteriorated the average daily gain of lambs. Average feed conversion rate was: 5.81, 5.38, 6.52, 7.64 and 9.80 kg feed per kg gain, and the feed cost per kg gain was 494, 393, 450, and 549 fils for each of the five treatments respectively. The results showed that, under the current feed prices in Jordan, replacing up to 10% of barley with olive pulp proves to be beneficial and economically feasible. Such a treatment improves liveweight and feed conversion rates in lambs and reduces feed cost per kg gain. On the other hand, going up to 40% olive pulp in rations for lambs proves to be
detrimental in terms of liveweight gain, feed conversion and feed
