Abstract:

The present experiment was carried out on thirty-two pregnant Karan Fries (KF) cows. In control group, cows were fed basal diet. In T1 each cow was fed rumen protected choline (RPC) (55g/day), in T2 - green tea extract (GTE) (3g/d) and in T3-RPC + GTE (55+3)g/day along with basal diet. The duration of experiment was 30 days before calving to 60 days after parturition. Animals were evaluated on average body weights, body condition score (BCS) and dry matter intake (DMI). The fortnightly average body weights, BCS and DMI did not differ significantly (p ≥ 0.05) across the groups. In conclusion, feeding of RPC and GTE in combination did not affect the palatability and digestibility of the feed, for which it can be added in the feed formulation for better performance.
