Abstract:
A survey study was conducted to see the nutritional status of lactating buffaloes in Katni district of Madhya Pradesh. The survey data obtained revealed that buffaloes in Katni district were generally thriving on the grazing land. Wheat straw and paddy straw were the main dry roughage used for feeding of animals. Concentrate was mostly given to medium and high yielders. None of the respondents were aware about feeding standards and nutrient recommendations. Most of the respondents were occasionly providing common salt and rarely mineral mixture to their animals. Therefore, the animals were generally deprived of certain nutrients and were also suffering from nutritional deficiencies. In existing feeding practices, lactating buffaloes were mostly deficient in CP, TDN, Ca, P, Cu and Zn which has to be supplemented through diet to exploite yield potential of buffaloes.
