Abstract:
The effect of certain non-genetic factors on post-weaning growth traits of 301 Deccani lambs maintained at Livestock Research Station, Mahabubnagar, Telangana State was studied from October, 2012 to July, 2015. The least squares mean body weight was15.58 ± 0.15, 19.09 ± 0.14 and 22.95 ± 0.18 kg at 180, 270 and 360 days of age, respectively. Highly significant influence of sex on weight at 180 days (P<0.01) and of season on weight at 270 days (P<0.05) was observed.Weight of dam and parity had non-significant effect on the body weights studied. Moderate heritability ranging from 0.20 ± 0.06 to 0.30 ± 0.05 was obtained for body weights.
