Abstract:

A total of eighteen advance pregnant Murrah buffaloes were divided in three groups of six each: Control (CON), Soybean oil (SBO) and Mustard oil (MO). The oils were supplemented @ 200 ml/animal/day from 21 days prepartum to 90 days postpartum to examine their effects on body condition score of lactating Murrah buffaloes. The results revealed non-significant changes and the values were numerically higher in SBO (3.34±0.16) and MO (3.30±0.15) followed by CON (3.17±0.12). It is concluded that the supplementation of oils has kept the animals in positive energy balance and improved the body condition score in comparison to CON.
