Abstract:

A lactation trial was conducted to study the effect of feeding sugarcane by products based complete ration on milk yield and milk quality as well, of murrah buffaloes. Seven rations (six complete rations were formulated by using sugarcane by-products and other crop residues and balanced concentrate mixture in the mash form and one conventional ration comprised with hybrid Napier and concentrate mixture) were prepared and fed 28 Murrah buffaloes distributed equally into seven groups in Randomized Block Design for a period of 180 days. It was found that the buffaloes performed equally well when compared to control i.e. traditional system of feeding (green, dry fodder and concentrate mixture fed separately) and supported the milk production up to 12.28 kg per day with fat % of 8.1 compared to 9.32 kg of milk production with 8.39 % of fat in buffaloes of control group. The feed cost per kg milk production was Rs. 4.00 – 5.37 at an intake level of 3.33 kg/100kg body weight in sugarcane based complete diets against Rs. 5.34 at an intake level of 2.79 kg per 100 kg body weight in buffaloes fed with control diet. Hence, the sugarcane by-products and other crop residues instead of wasting and burning in the fields, they can be incorporated up to the level of 30% to formulate complete rations to feed livestock for economic milk production.
