Abstract:

Present experiment was conducted with the objective to studyimpact of watering frequencies and rehydration on physiological responses of indigenous sheep under intensive production system during hot humid season. Eighteen adult dry non pregnant farm born Patanwadi and Marwari female (25-35 kg) sheep were selected and divided randomly on the basis of body weight into three treatment groups viz., T1: Control (watering thrice in a day), T2: (watering twice in a day), T3: (watering once in a day). The duration of experiment was 44 days (42 days of different watering frequencies and 2 days of rehydration phase). The experimental animals were maintained on conventional feed as per the recommendations of ICAR feeding standard (2013). All physiological responses (respiration rate and pulse rate at 7.30 a.m. and 2.30 p.m. and rectal temperature at 7.30 a.m.) except rectal temperature at 2.30 p.m. were at par among different watering frequencies. The present experiment indicated that the physiological parameters of experimental animals were non-significantly influenced by rehydration.
