Twenty one Marwari, Patanwadi and Merino X Patanwadi weaner lambs (12.40 to 14.68 kg) were
randomly divided into three dietary treatments on body weight basis viz T1 : TMR I-Conventional
group (Maize- 22%, Ground nut cake- 15%, Rice polish- 15%, molasses- 10%, mineral mixture- 3%and urea treated wheat straw- 35 %), T2 : TMR-II supplemented non conventional group I (Azolla-10%, P J Pods -15 %, Corn steep liquor -12 %, Rice Polish- 10 %, G N Cake- 5 %, molasses- 10%,mineral mixture- 3% and urea treated wheat straw- 35 %) and T3 : TMR-III supplemented nonconventional group II (Azolla-20%, P J Pods -17 %, Corn steep liquor -15 %, molasses- 10%, mineral
mixture- 3% and urea treated wheat straw- 35 %). The average final body weight at the end of the
experiment was recorded 25.24 ± 1.96, 23.51 ± 1.36 and 21.07 ± 1.12 kg in TMR-I, TMR-II and
TMR-III, respectively. The treatment groups did not differ from each other. The body weight gain
and body measurements were significantly (P0.05) influenced by the treatments. The dr matter
intake (kg /head) during the entire experimental period was recorded 85.37 ± 19.10, 90.86 ± 4.30
and 81.02 ± 6.09 in TMR-I, TMR-II and TMR-III which differed (P
