Present study was planned to highlight the effect of Total Mixed Ration (TMR) feeding on the growth performance of Beetal kids under stall-fed conditions. Twenty three weaned Beetal kids were taken randomly distributed in three treatment groups which were on basis of average body weight, gender and age. The selected groups were further sub-grouped for the feeding purposes. The experimental diets were offered to the animals as follows: 1) Conventional feeding method 2) Hay based TMR 3) Fresh fodder based TMR. Results showed that TMR feeding resulted in improvement of live body weight of T1 group kids over the T2 and control group. The average daily gain was also found to be higher in T1 group as comparison to T2 and control group (P<0.1). Likewise, animals under T1 group followed by T2 group have shown numerically higher values for overall body measurements except body length than the control group. An increase in pattern of Body Condition Score (BCS) of all the kids was observed from day 0 to day 120 of the trial.
