An experiment was conducted for a period of 120 daysto study the effect of UMMB as supplementary feeding and deworming on the reproductive performance and milk yield of dairy animals. Twenty milking cows of 4 to 6 years age group were selected randomly with initial average milk production of 6.22 liter per day. Before the start of experiment all the animals were dewormed against internal and external parasites on first day and from next day all the animals were divided in two group viz T1 control (farmers practice) and T2 feeding UMMB 300 g per day. Observations on all closely monitored dairy animals revealed an average increase of milk production from 0.8 - 1.08liter per animal per day, improvement in health and90% animals were comes in heat and conceives in T2 group in the comparison of T1 group. Farmer’s practice is not only reduces milk production and increases costs per kg milk, but also affects various physiological functions including long term animal health, fertility and productivity. It is also essential that milk producers feed their animals the nutrients in amounts that match the physiological needs and objective of keeping the animal. It was concluded that anthelmintic drugs decreases the parasitic load and UMMB being a good source of energy, protein and minerals improved milk yield, general health status and reproductive performance of dairy animals.
