Abstract:

The study was designed to assess the effect of Moringa oleifera leaf meal on feed intake and growth performance of murrah buffalo calves. A total of 12 Murrah buffalo calves with similar body weight of either sex at the age of 5th day was selected and randomly distributed in two different groups (Control and M10) with six calves in each group. Control group reared on calf starter along with milk. Whereas along with milk calf starter was replaced by Moringa oleifera leaf meal @ of 10% for M10 group. Result revealed that the body weight changes, average daily gain, dry matter intake, average daily dry matter intake (% BW), protein efficiency was significantly varied among the group. It can be concluded that Moringa leaf meal can replace upto 10 per cent of calf starter and concentrate mixture to attend better body weight gain of Murrah buffalo calf rearing.
