  Sudan is a vast country that is well known of its large animal population. Roselle is one of the important oil crops usually grown in Sudan for plant oil manufacturing. This experiment was conducted to investigate and evaluate Roselle seed as a ruminants feed through the effects on carcass characteristics of Sudan desert sheep. Crushed Roselle Seeds (CRS) meal was used at three levels (0, 15 and 25%). Roselle seeds were incorporated in three isocaloric, isonitrogenous diets (A, B and C, respectively). Thirty-six male lambs of Sudan desert sheep, Hamari ecotype, were selected according to their age (4-5 months) and their average body weight (21.8 kg). The lambs were randomly assigned to three treatments (12 animals each), then animals in each treatment were subdivided into three groups each of four animals (replicates) the trial extended for two months. The study showed a significant difference (p>0.05) among the treatment groups for slaughter weight (highest 38.17, lowest 37.59), empty body weight (highest 23.90, lowest 22.75), dressing percentage on live body weight (highest 52.70, lowest 49.68), dressing percentage on empty body weight (highest 62.25, lowest 60.51), hot carcass weight (highest 20.66, lowest 18.27), cold carcass weight (highest 20.31, lowest 18.23), carcass wholesale cuts, meat quality attributes, carcass physical composition and carcass chemical composition. On other hand slaughter by-products showed no significant differences (p<0.05) among treatment groups except liver, mesenteric fat, rumen (empty), reticulum (empty) which showed significant difference (p>0.05) among the treatments groups. Feeding of 25% crushed Roselle seed meal seems to enhance carcass characteristics and gave satisfactory results.

  This experiment was conducted to assess the effects of incorporating roselle seed in ruminants feed. Crushed Roselle Seeds (CRS) meal was used at three levels (0, 15 and 25%), in three isocaloric, isonitrogenous diets (A, B and C, respectively). Thirty-six male lambs of Sudan desert sheep (Hamarri ecotype) were selected at average age of 4-5 months and average body weight of 21.8 kg. The lambs were randomly assigned to three treatments (12 animals each), each treatment was further subdivided into three groups of four animals (replicates). The lambs were fed on the experimental rations for 70 days. The study showed significant differences (p<0.05) among the different treatments for Average Final Body Weight Gain (AFBG), Average Total Weight Gain (ATG), Average Daily Feed Intake (ADFI) as percentage of live body weight, Feed Conversion Rate (FCR) and cost of 1 kg dry matter intake wihle there were no significant differences (p>0.05) among the different treatments for Average Initial Body Weight (AIW), average daily feed intake and Average Daily Weight Gain (ADG). According to the results, roselle seed meal had no adverse effects on ruminant’s performance; it maybe used up to 25% in lambs feeding with satisfactory results. In addition, roselle seed meal could be used as a source of protein for growing lambs and fattening of sheep instead of other oil seeds cakes during the dry seasons and the lack of other protein source.
