Abstract:

Twelve Murrah buffaloes(in their early lactation) were divided into two groups of six buffaloes each on the basis of average daily milk yield. 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 feed intake, body condition score (BCS), feed conversion ratio (FCR), milk yield and 6% fat corrected milk yield were recorded. Significant difference in mean DMI (kg/d) was not observed between the treatment and control groups. The average daily milk yield was significantly (P<0.05) higher in treatment group compared to control group of buffaloes. The feed conversion ratio (FCR) was significantly (P<0.05) low in treatment group compared to control group of buffaloes. Supplementation of multi-strain probiotic did not have any influence on body condition score in Murrah buffaloes. The present research concludes that multi-strain probiotic supplementation @20gms/animal/day significantly lowered the FCR and significantly increased the milk yield in Murrah buffaloes.
