This research was conducted to study the responses of early and mid-lactating Malabari does due to dietary supplementation of rice bran oil and calcium salts of fish oil. 12 Malabari does were selected of first week of lactation as control T1 and experimental T2 with six does in each group. The proximate composition of green grass and feeds were analysed. The feeding trial was conducted till 60 days of lactation with recording the daily feed intake and milk production performance during early and mid-lactation. There was no significant difference of daily feed intake like green grass intake, concentrate intake and dry matter intake between T1 and T2 group. There was no significant difference in milk yield of Malabari does between T1 and T2 group statistically, but there was a non-significant increase in the average milk yield was recorded in the Malabari does of T2 group throughout the experiment when compared to T1 group. The yield in the treatment group was 6.0 per cent higher than the control group.
