Resume The high pre weaning mortality recorded in West African Dwarf lambs is caused by insufficient breast milk. To reduce this pre weaning mortality, an experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of Spondias mombin leaves on ewe’s milk production and growth performance of theirs lambs in southern Benin. The assay was conducted on 18 lactating ewes divided into three homogeneous groups of 6 animals each who received supplementation of leaves of this plant. The resulted outcomes indicate that the leaves of Spondias mombin have a significant effect on milk production of ewes and lambs weight gain. The average value of 94.00; 94.67 and 68.67 g/day were found in group 1, group 2 and control group, respectively. However, both types of treatment had similar effects on milk production of ewes and growth of lamb. The increase in milk production was on an average 36.40% and 37.2% in group 1 and group 2 respectively. Treatments by leaves of Spondias mombin had no significant effect on live weight change of ewes during lactation (p > 0.05). Also, the leaves of Spondias mombin had no significant effect on pH and ash content, protein and milk fat. This difference was significant for dry matter content of milk.
