Abstract:

The study was conducted to develop the methane mitigation through lipid supplementation in buffaloes. Linseed oil was used in the concentrate mixture and five different concentrate mixtures were prepared using 0, 1, 2, 3 and 4 percent linseed oil. The combinations were made of these concentrate mixtures with gram straw in the ratio of 10:90 to 90:10 for straw: concentrate mixture and evaluated for in-vitro methane production and in-vitro dry matter digestibility. The methane production was significantly lower and dry matter digestibility was significantly better on 70:30 and 60:40 gram straw to concentrate combination, where linseed oil was included at one percent in concentrate mixture. The addition of linseed oil in concentrate mixture at two percent level could be effective in methane inhibition as well enhancing dry matter digestibility at higher levels of gram straw i.e. 60 and 70 in combination to concentrates, however linseed oil at one percent level with roughage to concentrate ratio maintained at 70:30, could be economical strategy of methane mitigation in buffaloes. The higher level of linseed oil in concentrate mixture inhibited methane significantly but dry matter digestibility could not be enhanced to that extent. It is concluded that gram straw and concentrate mixture having linseed oil at one percent level with roughage to concentrate ratio maintained at 70:30, could be economical strategy of methane mitigation in buffaloes.
