Abstract:

The present study was undertaken to study the effect of varying levels of Moringa oleifera leaf meal (MOLM) supplementation on in vitro utilization of concentrate mixtures replacing total crude protein of soybean @ 10,20,30,40 and 50%. The net gas production was significantly increased as the moringa supplementation level increased in the concentrate ration. It was significantly higher in 30% moringa based concentrate and significantly lowest in control concentrate. The partition factor (PF) was significantly lowest in 30% moringa concentrate (3.71) and significantly higher in 10% moringa containing concentrate mixture (4.26). The OMD was significantly higher in 30% moringa based ration and lowest in control ration but it was statistically comparable in moringa supplemented concentrate rations. The NDFD was significantly higher in 30% moringa concentrate ration but statistically comparable in moringa leaf meal supplemented concentrate rations. The MMP and EMMP was significantly higher in 10%. However, it was statistically comparable in all moringa leaf meal supplemented concentrate rations. The true digestibility was significantly higher in 30% moringa supplemented and it was significantly lower in control ration. The ME value was significantly lower in control concentrate and statistically higher in 30% moringa supplemented ration followed by 40 % moringa based ration. It can be concluded that Moringa oleifera leaf meal can replace up to30 percent protein of soybean meal without any adverse effect.
