Abstract: The present study was designed to investigate whether there was any effect of Trigonella feonum graceum L. (TFG) on appetite and growth of Awassi lambs or not. Thirtysix, 3-month-old male lambs were used for 84-d. The main effect was the doses of TFG inclusions (0, 2, 4 and 8 %) in lamb diet. Each treatment consisted of 9 lambs as a group. Lamb diet having 2467 Kcal ME and 161g kg-1 made from barley, cotton seed meal, wheat bran and alfalfa straw. TFG inclusions (0, 2,4 and 8 %) did not affect either daily food intake (1423.6, 1518.9, 1615.6 and 1586.9 g, respectively) or daily live weight gain (238.0, 245.1, 221.3 and 233.7 g, respectively) (P>0.05). The results showed that Trigonella feonum graceum L. did not affect the appetite and growth of Awassi lambs.
