H Khodae, and O Esteghamat
This study was evaluated the effects of different levels of Bioherbal supplementation on performance of moghani fattening lambs. In this experiment, 24 male lambs with average weight of 31.73 ± 1.2 kg in a completely randomized design, with 4 treatments and 6 replication for 84 days were studied. In this experiment, the diet has an energy level of 5.2 kg mega calories and 14.7% crude protein according to NRC (1985) recommendations. Food items were hay, straw, wheat, soybean meal, corn mill, Barley, vitamin-mineral supplements and salt.Treatments consisted of: Diet without Bioherbal supplementation as a control group, group 2 consisted Level of 10 grams Bioherbal supplements per kg of ration. Group 3, 20 grams Bioherbal and group 4, Level of 30 grams Bioherbal supplements per kg of ration dry matter. The results showed that the use of Bioherbal complementary levels had significant effects on dry matter intake of fattening lambs and group with level of 20 g Bioherbal had better performance.

M Namvar, and O Esteghamat
This study was performed to investigate the effects of replacing barley with different levels of beet pulp on growth performance of fattening Moghani lambs. In this experiment, average weight of 28 male lambs 32.3 ± 1.8 kg were used in a completely randomized design with 4 treatments and 7 replications. In this experiment, dietary energy level 2.6 mega calories per kg and 14.8 percent crude protein been used according to the NRC (1985). Treatments consisted of control group without beet pulp feeding, group 2, 3, and 4 with 9, 18 and 27% beet pulp in their feeding ration respectively. The results showed that the use of different levels of beet pulp had no significant effect on dry matter intake of fattening lambs, but group with feeding of 27% beet pulp attained significantly higher performance.
