Abstract:
A trial was conducted to evaluate the effect of dry and fresh fodder based Total Mixed Ration (TMR) feeding on faecal parasitic load under stall-feeding. For investigation, 23 weaned Beetal kids were utilized and, and their faecal parasitic load was estimated using the Modified McMaster Technique. The selected kids were randomly distributed in three treatment groups on basis of average body weight, gender and age. The experimental diets offered to kids were as follows: 1) Conventional feeding method (control group) 2) Hay based TMR (T1) 3) Fresh fodder based TMR (T2). The results when transformed logarithmically showed a declining trend in shedding of parasitic eggs in faeces of animals fed T1 (Hay based TMR) group as comparison to control and T2 group. Parasitic eggs shed per gram of faeces (PEG) were found to differ significantly at day 90 (P<0.05). Similarly, oocysts shed per gram of faeces (OPG) values at day 90 and 120 vary significantly (P<0.05) being lowest for T1 group as comparison to control and T2 groups.
