Abstract:

The present investigation was conducted to assess the effect of herbal feed supplementation Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) on milk yield and Post-Partum estrus in lactating Sahiwal crossbred cows during summer season on twenty lactating Sahiwal crossbred (Holstein Friesian x Sahiwal) cows in early stage of lactation were selected for the experiment between 1 February 2019 to 31 May 2019 (120 days Post-Partum). All the cows were randomly divided into two groups T1 (control) and T2 (Treatment) of 10 in each group. The treatment group was provided Shatavari root powder @ 50 g/head/day for 90 days Post-Partum. Data related to Milk production take fortnightly interval. The average fortnightly milk yield of 90 days lactation trail was 9.88±0.15 and 10.87±0.41 kg/d in T1 (control) and T2 groups respectively and was significantly (P<0.05) higher in T2 than the T1 (control). Mean of first Post-Partum estrus and service period was 77.50±2.50 and 52.83±1.27 days, and 112.50±2.50 and 90.16±1.44 days respectively, in the T1 (control) and T2 group was significantly reduced (P<0.05).
