Abstract:

The present study was conducted to evaluate the effect of herbal feed supplement shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) in terms of qualitative and quantitative parameters of milk, in crossbred cows. The cows were divided in four groups. Group G1 was control group, in which the animals receive experimental feed without any other feed supplements, whereas the animals of experimental group 2 (G2), group 3 (G3) and group 4 (G4) were fed a similar feed along with shatavari root powder 40 gm, 80 gm and 120 gm respectively. The study was conducted for a period of 60 days including 7 days digestibility trial. Daily milk yield was also recorded. Milk composition of each animal was determined once every fortnight. Cows fed shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) root powder produce more milk (P≤0.01) and milk fat per cent, milk fat yield, milk protein per cent, milk protein yield, milk lactose per cent, milk lactose yield, milk solid not fat per cent, milk solid not fat yield, milk total solid per cent and milk total solid yield content (P<0.01) than control cows.
