Abstract:

The present study was conducted at Livestock farm, Adhartal, College of Veterinary Science & A.H., N.D.V.S.U., Jabalpur (M.P.). A total of 12 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 MO as mustard oil supplementation @ 200 ml/animal/day upto 90 days post-partum to study the effect on economics of milk production in lactating Murrah buffaloes. The daily milk yield was recorded individually twice at 6 A.M. and 4 P.M. and the milk fat per cent was studied using ultrasonic auto milk analyser. Results revealed reduced feed cost (Rs.) per kg 6% FCM yield in MO (19.03) than CON (20.25) and highest return of Rs. 270.82 per animal per day in MO. The net return in comparison to CON was Rs. 45.94 in MO which suggests that supplementation of MO is economically feasible. The additional benefits are due to significant (p<0.05) improvement in average daily milk yield by 8.10 per cent and milk fat content by 9.14 per cent in MO as compared to CON. The 6% FCM yield were significantly (p<0.05) higher in MO followed by CON. In conclusion, MO provided more economic returns to the dairy farm.
