Abstract:

A study was conducted in lactating dairy cows to evaluate the effect of wet rice distillers’ grain and soluble (WRDGS) on milk production and composition. Forty (40) lactating Jersey cows, in mid-lactation with an average live weight 350 kg and producing 8-9 kg milk daily were divided into two groups consisting of twenty animals in each group having 4 replicates with 5 animals in each. The control group cows were individually fed 6.0 kg concentrate and 4.0 kg straw whereas treatment group cows were fed 4.0 kg concentrate, 5.0 kg straw and 4.0 kg wet rice distiller grains and soluble. The results indicated that milk yield, milk fat, milk protein and lactose percentage was not significantly (p>0.05) affected by feeding of WRDGS. However, total solid and SNF percentage was significantly increased in the experimental group. The WRDGS fed cows consumed less dry matter without affecting its milk production, reflecting better economic gain per animal in experimental feeding than control.
