Abstract:
A study was conducted on 24 Murrah buffalo calves of either sex between 6 to 9 month of age at animal Farm, LUVAS, Hisar during summer season from July 15, 2015 to October 15, 2015 (90Days). Experimental calves were devided into four treatments having six animals in each treatment viz. Loose housing system + 100% feeding level (T1), Loose housing system + 120% feeding level (T2), Conventional barn housing system + 100% feeding level (T3) and Conventional barn housing system + 120% feeding level (T4). There was significantly higher (p<0.05) temprature and temprature humidity index in conventional house than loose house. There was no significant difference in dry matter intake between two housing systems. Daily dry matter intake was significantly (P<0.05) higher in ICAR 120% feeding level than ICAR 100% feeding level. And there was no significant different in Crude protein intake between two housing systems. However, Crude protein intake was significantly (P<0.05) influenced by feeding level being higher in ICAR 120% level than ICAR 100% level. It may be concluded that the dry matter intake and crude protein intake significantly influenced by feeding level.
