Abstract:

The present study was conducted to assess the effect of supplementing herbal feed additives (HFAs) Jaiphal Suva and Haldi at the rate of 1% of DM basis in TMR (R:C65:35) on the  nutrient utilization, nitrogen retention, rumen fermentation and blood parameters   of male crossbred calves by 4x4 latin square designThe herb supplementation did not have any significant effect on digestibility of various nutrients and percent nitrogen retention in male cross bred calves. The blood biochemical profile for various parameters did not show any significant effect on herb supplementation i.e. herbs have no deleterious effect on animal health except supplementation of herb suva in male cross bred calves significantly increased (P<0.05) the alkaline phosphatase activity (AKP). Herbs supplementation has stimulatory effect on rumen fermentation parameters (TN, TVFA, NPN NH3-N) which were (P<0.05) higher than control group.
