Abstract:
Twenty male Ganjam kids (2-3 months, 6.22 ± 0.15 kg BW) were divided into four groups (n=5 per group) following randomized block design. Animals in the control group (I) were maintained as per farmer practice, while animals in group II and III were additionally supplemented with 100 g concentrate mixture and 05 g of area specific mineral mixture respectively. Kids in group IV were supplemented with both 100 g concentrate mixture and 05 g of area specific mineral mixture. Experimental feeding was done for a period of 90 days. Blood was collected on 0 and 90 days of the experimental feeding to study the blood chemistry and serum mineral concentration of goats. Results revealed significant (P<0.05) increase in average daily gain in supplemented groups than the control. Serum mineral concentrations were significantly (P<0.05) higher all the treatment groups than control animals. It may be concluded that supplementation of 100 g of concentrate along with 05 g of area specific mineral mixture improved the performance of Ganjam goats in its native tract.
