Abstract:

The deficiency of each mineral in animal results in various health disorders that can be removed by supplementation of suitable specific mineral. This study was conducted to find out the influence of area-specific mineral mixture supplementation on reproductive performances during peripartum period in Black Bengal does with a birth weight of the kid, first postpartum heat, conception rate, hormones (Progesterone and Estradiol-17β). For this purpose, two groups of 20 pregnant Black Bengal does were made into according to the body weights viz., Control- T0 (N=10) and Treatment- T1 (N=10) supplemented with 0 and 6 g ASMM/animal/day, respectively starting from 3 months before the expected date of parturition to till the onset of first post-partum estrus. Overall mean birth weight of kid born and mean average placental weight in control (T0) and treatment (T1) group were statistically non-significant (P>0.05) between the groups. The onset of first postpartum heat and conception rate after first postpartum heat in control (T0) and treatment (T1) groups were non-significant (P>0.05) between the groups. Overall mean plasma estradiol-17β (22.34±0.26 vs. 23.13±0.30 pg/ml) and progesterone (5.96±0.17 vs.7.22±0.17 ng/ml) were significant (P< 0.05) between groups. So, the supplementation of the area-specific mineral mixture improved the reproductive performances of Black Bengal does.
