Abstract:

The study was to assess the effect of feeding Japan hlo (Mikania micrantha Kunth.) in ‘meal form’ (JLM) as protein substitute on haemato-biochemical profiles of growing LWY pigs. Sixteen weaned LWY pigs were assigned four dietary treatments with JLM at 0%, 5%, 10% and 15% level as substitute of soyabean meal (SBM) at an amount on equivalent protein basis for a period of 75 days. For haemato-biochemical parameters, blood were collected at 0, 30th, 60th, 75th days of experiment and analysed utilising commercial analytical kits and following standard procedures. The results revealed no significant differences (P>0.05) in both haematological and biochemical parameters among the treatment groups up to 15% JLM inclusion level. The parameters were observed to be within normal range in all the groups, although were variable. Thus, it was concluded that Japan hlo (Mikania micrantha Kunth.) in ‘meal form’ can be utilised up to 15% level as protein source replacing soyabean meal (SBM) at an amount on equivalent protein basis in growing LWY pigs of Mizoram.
