Abstract:

Feeding management of dairy animals plays a major role on milk production in dairy animals. Balanced feeding with effective utilization of available feeds and fodder reduces the cost on dairy animal feeding. A field trial was conducted to assess the effect of balanced feeding on body weight gain and milk production in different breeds of cattle. A total of 30 milch cows consisting of Crossbred Jersey (n=9), crossbred Holstein Friesian (n=10 and Ongole (n=11) were selected for the study from three different villages in Banaganapallemandal of Andhra Pradesh. Initial data (T1) on body measurements, body weight, milk yield and Fat in milk was collected. Balanced ration was formulated using an android application “Ration Formulator” developed by Sri Venkateswara Veterinary University, Tirupati. The cows were fed with the recommended quantity of feed ingredients for 30 days. Final data (T2) was collected on the above parameters. The data revealed that among the three breeds, Ongole cows gain more body weight (38.2kg) followed by crossbred jersey (36.8kg) and crossbred HF (29.11kg). Among the three breeds, highest improvement in 3.5%FCM milk was recorded in Ongole (48.7%) followed by Crossbred jersey (33.5%) and crossbred HF (14.25%). The experiment concluded that feeding balanced ration advanced tools improves body weight gain and milk production in dairy animals.
