ABSTRACT
Lambs from sires selected for high or low Estimated Breeding Values (EBVs) for yearling eye muscle development, were maintained on high or low energy rations. During the feeding period, they were exposed to a one-off bout of exercise designed to deplete muscle glycogen. The progeny of high muscling EBV sires had increased pre-exercise muscle glycogen concentration and post exercise rates of glycogen repletion; however this was only evidenced when Metabolizable Energy (ME) intakes were adequate. Generally ME intake increased rate of muscle glycogen repletion.
