Abstract

The increasing demand of the consumer market for sheep meat suggests the development of suitable production systems for constant availability of this product throughout the year, as in bovine, pork and poultry. The consumer demands for products with good quality and affordable price. In this perspective, evaluate production systems and their variables with the final product are essential. To decrease production costs and achieve better lamb's performance results, it is interesting the usage of silage from crop-livestock integration in feedlots. The research will be held at Education and Research Farm in the Department of Sheep, College of Engineering of Ilha Solteira (FE / UNESP) in order to evaluate the intake, performance, digestibility, carcass characteristics and meat quality of 18 ½ Dorper ½ Santa Inês not castrated lambs with approximately 15 kg and 60 days old, housed in individual cages and fed with sorghum silage exclusive or intercropped with Brachiaria brizantha cv. MG-5 and Panicum maximum cv. Tanzania coming from an integrated crop-livestock under no-tillage system. It will also be performed economic analysis of the lamb finishing system fed with these roughages.
