AbstractThis study was carried out in felid of Animal Resources Department at Tikrit University .By used Twenty Awassi lambs which individually feeding live-weight was 25.49 kg ,with ages from 3 -4 months old were used in a experiment to study the effect of feeding two level of barley to the roughage( 60% barley with 40% roughage or 40% barley with 60% roughage) with two level of ginger( 0&5 gm/kg Dm) on productive performance . Barley mixed with alfalfa were offered to lambs at rate of 3.5% of live weight. No significant effect for level of the concentrate to the roughage feed (B:R) or add ginger or interaction between them for initial ,final weight, feed intake and feed conversion. There was no significant effect of level C:R and ginger for total weight , but there was significant effect(أ≤0,05) for the first group ( high barley with low roughage with ginger) 11.47kg and there was no significant effect of the level C:R and ginger effect in the average daily weight gain , But first group improved significantly 0.13 kg compared to second group ( high barley with low roughage ) 0.11 kg.
