Abstract:

The study was taken up to assess the effect of herbs containing essential oils (EOs) viz. Jaiphal, Suva and Haldi supplemented individually at 1 to 3% levels on TMR varying in different R:C on the in vitro methane production and utilization of nutrients. Supplementation of jaiphal, irrespective of their level had significantly (P <0.05) higher OMD %, PF (partition factor), NDFD, DMD, The methane production on DMD and OMD basis, A/P ratio was lowest (P < 0.05) in jaiphal supplemented TMR but it was comparable in other supplemented TMRs. Irrespective of the of herb and R:C ratio, the PF, OMD%, NDFD%, MMP and EMMP and DM digestibility was significantly (P <0.05) higher at 1% level of herb supplementation in TMRs. It was concluded that jaiphal supplementation @ 1% level significantly (P <0.05) reduced the methane production and improved the utilization of nutrients.
