Abstract: The current study was aimed to evaluate the effect of feeding sheep with high concentrate ration on blood biochemistry and rumen fermentation parameters. A total of 10 crossbred male lambs (12±02 months old) were selected and divided equally into two groups viz. control (CTL) and treatment (FL), with 05 animals in each group. The duration of study was 74 days (involving 14 days acclimatization period). The CON group animals were fed by thumb rule method (60% roughage and 40% concentrate) and FL group was fed high concentrate ration (80% concentrate and 20% roughage). The outcomes of blood biochemical parameters indicated non-significant difference (p³0.05) between treatment groups. Results of rumen fermentation parameters also showed non-significant difference (p³0.05) among treatments, except rumen pH and total nitrogen at 60th day which showed significant difference (p<0.05). Thus, from the findings of present experiment it could be concluded that feeding high concentrate ration had no negative effect on haemato-biochemistry and rumen fermentation pattern of sheep reared intensively.
