Abstract:

A study was carried out to discern the effect of dietary incorporation of rumen protected methionine (RPM), lysine (RPL) and choline (RPC) on feed intake in transition Murrah buffaloes. Based on previous lactation milk yield and body weight, 20 buffaloes (2nd to 4th lactation) in their third trimester were divided into four groups and fed as follows, Group I (control): basal diet consisting of wheat straw ad lib+ green fodder + concentrate mixture as per ICAR (2013) feeding standard; Group II: basal diet supplemented with 7g RPM + 15g RPL; Group III: basal diet supplemented with 50g RPC and Group IV: basal diet supplemented with 7g RPM + 15g RPL + 50g RPC. The feeding trial was of 180 days duration (90 days before and 90 days postpartum). The DM intake was recorded at fortnightly interval for two consecutive days. And the results showed that there was no significant difference in total dry matter intake of buffaloes of all four groups both in pre-partum and post- partum period due to dietary supplementation of rumen protected methionine, lysine and choline.
