    We present the first observation of the baryon decay Λb0→ Λc+π- followed by Λc+→pK-π+ in 106pb-1 pp̄ collisions at s=1.96TeV in the CDF experiment. In order to reduce systematic error, the measured rate for Λb0 decay is normalized to the kinematically similar meson decay B̄0→D+π- followed by D+→π+K-π+. We report the ratio of production cross sections (σ) times the ratio of branching fractions (B) for the momentum region integrated above pT>6GeV/c and pseudorapidity range |η|<1.3: σ(pp̄→Λb0X)/ σ(pp̄→B̄0X)×B(Λb0→Λc+π-)/ B(B̄0→D+π-)=0.82±0.08(stat)±0.11(syst)±0. 22[B(Λc+→pK-π+)]. © 2007 The American Physical Society.
