Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of yeast supplementation on growth, feed conversion efficiency and cost of feeding in Surti goat kids. A total of 16 male Surti goat kids of four months old were selected with average body weight of 7.53±0.13 Kg. Animals were randomly divided in to two groups with eight replication per group. Active dried yeast (S. cerevisiae CNCM I-1077) was supplemented in one experimental group at the rate of 2 % of DMI, and the second group without any supplementation was control. The feed intake was measured daily for 80 days and body weight was taken on first and eighth day of the experiment. The result shows that there was significant (P < 0.05) improvement in body weight gain, feed efficiency and cost economics in supplemented group without affecting the feed intake between the control and supplemented group. Hence it was concluded that supplementation of active dried yeast (S. cerevisiae CNCM I-1077) at 2% of dry matter intake would improve the growth, feed conversion efficiency and cost of feeding in surti goat kids.
