Short summary
Oak acorn diets fed to lambs during the pre-weaning period did not negatively affect their future growth performance. Replacing barley grain with oak acorn in concentrate during the post-weaning period had no effects on a lamb’s growth performance, health and viability. Oak acorn can replace up to 40 % of barley grain in finishing feedlot lamb diets. The substitution of oak acorn for barley has no effects on carcass traits.
