Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to evaluate incorporation of rumen protected LYS and MET on economics of fedding in Jaffrabadi buffalo heifers. Eighteen buffalo heifers of Cattle Breeding Farm, Junagadh Agricultural University were offered one of the dietary treatments for a period of 180 days: T1-DCP requirement met through concentrate mixture, T2-DCP requirement through cottonseed cake and concentrate mixture (50:50) and T3-In addition to DCP requirement through concentrate mixture with supplementation of rumen bypass LYS and MET @ 5.0 g and 2.5 g/day/animal respectively. Cost of feeding/day (Rs/day) was 48.13±4.18, 45.99±2.01 and 55.19±2.03 in T1, T2 and T3, respectively, cost of feeding significantly (P<0.05) higher in T3 than T1 and T2. Cost of feeding (Rs/Kg body weight gain) was 99.81±13.49, 87.66 ±4.06 and 98.63±4.71 for T1, T2 and T3, respectively, the differences being non-significant. Cost of feeding was higher in T3 due to supplementation of the rations with rumen by pass amino acids.
