Abstract:

This study evaluated the effect of dietary monensin supplementation on nutrient intake, milk yield and milk quality of Lactating Murrah Buffaloes during early lactation stage receiving concentrate and sugar graze fodder. Twelve lactating Murrah buffaloes (567.50 kg of live weight; initial days in milk = 52.83 ± 10.24; milk yield = 6-8 kg/d) were randomly allocated to two groups depending upon the body weight and days in milk. Both the groups were fed sugar graze and concentrate mixture as a total mixed ration, feed at 70:30 ratio without supplementation (control) or supplemented with monensin 24 mg/kg of dry matter intake (monensin) for sixty days. The results depicted that dietary monensin supplementation in lactating Murrah buffaloes has no significant effect on nutrients intake, milk production, fat corrected milk yield and milk composition.
