Abstract:

Green fodder is an economic source of nutrients for the dairy animals. It is highly palatable and digestible. Micro-organisms present in green fodder help in improving digestibility of crop residues under mixed feeding system. In erode district, mixed fodder cultivation demonstrated in 05 farmers field with the technical support and provides the seeds of CO5, Hedge Lucerne, COFS31 and Agathi and developed them as seed farmer to continue supply of seeds to farming community. In this demonstration the average yield of mixed fodder unit was 236.6qtl/acre when compared with conventional method (178.4qtl/acre). The benefit cost ratio was 2.14 and conventional method it is 1.88. Results of this technology revealed that milk yield increased up to 1.5litre/day/animal that indicates animals getting balanced green fodder availability throughout the year.
