Abstract:

The findings of a trial undertaken in dairy cows to evaluate the clinical efficacy of some polyherbal formulations in the management of retention of placenta are reported. Thirty cows were selected for the trial; the animals were divided into six groups, each consisting of five animals. The control group, T0, consisting of animals without retained placenta, was left untreated. In group T1, manual removal of the retained fetal membranes was practiced followed by intrauterine administration of two grams of oxytetracycline. Group T2 was treated orally with AV/UTP/23 premix (M/s Ayurvet Limited, India) @ 40 gtwice on first day, followed by 20 g twice daily for the next three days. Group T3 was orally administered AV/UTL/17 liquid (M/s Ayurvet Limited, India) @ 50 mL twice on first day followed by 25 mL twice daily for the next three days. Group T4 was orally administered Brand A mixed with jaggery @ 100 g soon after calving and 50 g thereafter repeated every six hours till the placenta was shed. Group T5 was drenched Brand B @ 100 mL twice on first day and once daily thereafter for the next three days. The response to the treatments, recorded in terms of the time taken from parturition to complete release of the fetal membranes, was 11.23 ± 3.2, 11.01 ± 1.1, 8.02 ± 1.2, 9.14 ± 1.22, 11.05 ± 2.2 and 10.01 ± 1.4 hours in the groups T0, T1, T2, T3, T4 and T5, respectively. Similarly, first post-partum estrus was observed at 90, 60, 70, 85 and 80 days whereas the number of artificial inseminations required for conception was 3, 3, 2, 2, 2 and 2 in groups T0-T5, respectively. 204, 204, 100, 110, 125 and 120 open days were recorded in the groups T0-T5, respectively. Overall percentual conception was recorded at nil in the group T0 followed by 60, 80, 60, 60 and 40 in the groups T1-T5, respectively. Group T2, receiving treatment with AV/UTP/23 premix, showed the best reproductive and production performances. It could be concluded that treatment with herbal products was successful at improving productive and reproductive parameters in dairy cows. Further, among the treatments tested, the use of AV/UTP/23 premix was found most effective for the management of retained placenta under field condition.
