Abstract:
Present study was conducted among twenty four apparently healthy Surti buffalo calves were divided into four groups: Control (without any supplementation), Prebiotic (T1: Mannan-oligosaccharides @ 10g/calf/day), Probiotic (T2: Lactobacillus acidophilus @ 3g/calf/day) and Prebiotic + Probiotic (T3: Mannan-oligosaccharides @ 10g/calf/day + Lactobacillus acidophilus @ 3g/calf/day). Twenty four apparently healthy Surti buffalo calves were divided into four groups: Control (without any supplementation), Prebiotic (T1: Mannan-oligosaccharides @ 10g/calf/day), Probiotic (T2: Lactobacillus acidophilus @ 3g/calf/day) and Prebiotic + Probiotic (T3: Mannan-oligosaccharides @ 10g/calf/day + Lactobacillus acidophilus @ 3g/calf/day). Perusal of data revealed that there was statistically non-significant difference in the live body weight among all these four groups of animals. However, the live body weights of T2 and T3 group of animals were comparatively higher than control group of animals at all stages of the study. T1 group of animals had comparatively lower body weights in comparison with T2 and T3 group of animals at almost all stages of the study. There was significant difference (p<0.05) in the average daily gain in body weights between control and T2 at 13-20th, 34-41th, 48-55th day of age while it was significantly different between T1 and T2 group of animals during 55-62nd day of age. Overall daily average daily gain during entire study period was 388.88±27.39, 427.57±46.77, 468.25±22.51 and 463.29±27.42 gm/day for control, T1, T2 and T3 group of Surti buffalo calves. A non-significant difference in the values of the heart girth, height at withers and body length among all four groups of calves at all stages was found.
