Abstract:

Thirty two ram lambs (11.3 kg ±0.3) randomly divided into 4 groups were subjected to four feeding regimes to evaluate the effects of feed restriction levels on biochemical parameters in a CRD model. The restricted phase for a period of 8 weeks was followed by realimentation phase for 4 weeks. Four treatments containing 8 animals in each were subjected to feed restriction at 0, 10, 20 and 30 percent. The serum cholesterol (P<0.05) and albumin linearly increased from T1 to T4 with the increasing levels of feed restriction. The same results were obtained for serum albumin and HDL Cholesterol and were non-significant. During realimentation phase, the serum cholesterol was highest (P<0.05) for T1 as compared to other treatments. Similar results were observed for T1 (P<0.05) for total proteins and HDL Cholesterol. Both the values were higher for T1 as compared to other groups. The other parameters like albumin and globulin were comparable among treatments. It was concluded that feed restriction and realimentation has a considerable effect on the serum biochemical parameters. Cholesterol and HDL (mg/dl) were the parameters highly affected (P<0.05) during the study while the albumin concentration remains mostly unchanged.
