Abstract:

Twelve advance pregnant Murrah buffaloes of identical parity and similar previous lactation yield were selected 21 days pre-partum and randomly assigned to two groups of six animals each; CON as control with basal diet and SBO as soybean oil supplementation @ 200 ml/animal/day upto 90 days post-partum to study the effect on production performances in lactating Murrah buffaloes at livestock farm, Adhartal, N.D.V.S.U., Jabalpur (M.P.). The BCS was evaluated using visual observation and palpation to 5 point scale and the milk components was analysed using ultrasonic auto milk analyser. The BCS, body weight, DMI, peak milk yield and persistency of lactation during entire study were statistically similar in both the groups. Results revealed significant (p<0.05) improvement in average daily milk yield by 13.54 per cent in SBO as compared to CON. The 6% FCM yield and predicted lactation yield were significantly (p<0.05) higher in SBO as compared to CON. The average milk fat content has significantly (p<0.05) improved by 7.25 per cent in SBO as compared to CON while SNF, protein and lactose per cent were statistically similar in both the groups. It can be concluded that SBO improved production performances in lactating Murrah buffaloes.
