Twelve Murrah buffaloes in their early lactation were divided into two groups of six buffaloes each on the basis of average daily milk yield in a completely randomized design. Group I was set as control and Group-II was supplemented with multi-strain probiotic @ 20gm/animal/day for a period of 90 days. The milk yield, 6% fat corrected milk yield, milk constituents yield, and the cost per kg milk produced were recorded during the experiment. The average daily milk yield and 6% fat corrected milk yield (kg) milk fat, SNF and total solids % were significantly (P<0.05) high in treatment group compared to control group of buffaloes. The cost per kg milk production was Rs 14.83 and Rs16.51 for treatment and control groups, respectively which saved Rs 1.68/liter milk production per day due to probiotic supplementation in buffaloes. The present research concluded that multi-strain probiotic supplementation @20gms/animal/day increased milk yield, milk constituent yield and decreased cost of milk production in Murrah buffaloes.
