Abstract:

The dairy farming in our country is entirely different from other developed countries. The reason is that small and marginal farmers feeding of dairy animals produce the bulk of production in our country. In terms of buffer use in nutrition, it has been defined as a salt of a weak acid which neutralizes acids that occur in feeds or acids produced during digestion and metabolism of nutrients. The experiment was carried out on 16 healthy crossbred cows nearly similar age and in late stage lactation to study the effect of feeding buffer on milk yield and fat per cent of raw milk. Four groups of buffer feeding were adopted in the study viz., concentrate mixture (control), concentrate mixture with 1%, 1.5% and 2% of NaHCO3 (Sodium bicarbonate). All cows were kept under same feeding schedule for 9 days under preliminary period to adapt the test diet followed by 28 days experimental period for records, and fed ration wheat straw and concentrate. The data on milk yield and composition of milk were analyzed through statistics using, analysis of variance technique. The data on mean value of Total solids, Fat per cent and Solid not fat per cent were significantly (P<0.05) higher in Group IV followed by Groups III, II and I, however specific gravity and milk yield (kg) were not significantly different between the groups. Based on these finding 2% of NaHCO3 was significantly at the level of (P<0.05) superior compared to control, 1% and 1.5% of NaHCO3.
