Abstract:
An experiment 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. The analysis of variance revealed that there was no significant different in Total digestible nutrients intake between two housing systems. However, Total digestible nutrients intake was significantly (P<0.05) influenced by feeding level. Daily Total digestible nutrients intake was significantly higher in ICAR 120% level than ICAR 100% level. It may be concluded that the total digestible nutrients intake significantly influenced by the feeding level.
