  In an experiment 24 castrated male Balochi lambs were selected and randomly divided into two groups based on average live body weight (21.08±1.4 kg/lam) and age (6-9 months) to see the effect of conventional feed resources on their production performance. Feed intake, weight gain and feed conversion efficiency (FCR) were recorded for 1-14 weeks to compare their performance under farmer feed (group-A) and compound feed (group-B). Results of feed intake, weight gain and FCR were significantly (p<0.01) different between the groups. Lambs in group A consumed average feed 544.6±16.8 g/d, gained lower (p<0.01) weight 74.89±2.4 g/d and higher FCR 12.47±0.47 as compared to Lambs of the group B, which consumed 452.6±13.6 g feed and gained 177.2±6.40 g/d weight with 4.38±0.16 FCR. The lamb fed on compound feed (group B) earned net profit of Rs.510.00 per lamb; while the lamb fed on farmers feed (group A) earned net profit of only Rs.108.00 per lamb. It was concluded that compound feed is cheaper and remarkably effective for fattening the lambs, while poor performance of lamb was observed when fed on farmers feed.

  The impact of crude protein (CP) levels on carcass protein content and growth of broiler were examined. Day old (200) chicks with average live body weight 41.60 g were equally divided into four groups A, B, C and D, fed 17 (control), 20, 23 and 26% CP, respectively. Feed intake, live body weight, feed conversion ratio (FCR), carcass weight and carcass protein contents were investigated. Average daily weight gain was 33.4, 39.0, 43.9 and 44.4g/bird against the feed consumption of 76.1, 86.0, 93.4 and 89.1 g/bird, with FCR of 2.28, 2.20, 2.12 and 2.00 in group A, B, C and D, respectively. Carcass weight 778.0, 996.3, 1180 and 1190 g/bird, carcass protein content was 37, 41, 46 and 49%, in group A, B, C and D, respectively. Greater (p<0.01) carcass weight of 1180 and 1190 g/bird and carcass protein content 46, 49% was obtained from ration contained 23 or 26% CP, respectively compared to control. The total price per bird earned was Rs. 57.76, 67.24 75.24 and 76.32 against total cost of 54.16, 59.77, 67.24 and 69.59/bird, respectively. The broiler growth and carcass protein content improved significantly (p<0.01) by increasing level of CP. It is concluded that group A (17% CP) or group D (26% CP) were less economical against 23 and 20% CP levels where fairly higher income was earned. However, from nutritional point of view 26% CP contained ration produced high protein carcass.
