     In livestock nutrition management to increase productivity, finding inexpensive sources of food is a fundamental solution. .The sub-sectors of the agricultural industry in the feeding of ruminant animals make it possible to use them for the production of valuable products such as meat and milk. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of using citrus and sugar beet pulp in diet on ruminal performance and fermentation of Baluchi lambs. This research was carried out in a completely randomized design on 40 Baluchi lamb with 4 treatments and 10 lambs pretreatment with an average weight of 30 kg ± 1.5. The trial period was 75 days. Treatments were: 1) control group (base diet + 0 % citrus pulp per head at day 2( base diet + 10 % citrus pulp per head at day 3( base diet + 20 % sugar beet pulp dry per head at day 4) basal diet + 10% citrus pulp + 5% beet pulp dry per head at day. There was a significant difference between the mean daily weight gain in the whole period between different diets (P <0.05). The best conversion coefficient was for the group that consumed citrus (6.25) and the control group with the highest conversion factor (7.75), which had a significant difference with other groups (P <0.05). The results of this study showed that there was no significant difference between the average duration of chewing time, rumination and eating among different diets. According to the results of this study, the use of citrus pulp as a sub.
