Abstract:
This experiment was aimed to investigate the effect of feeding Total Mixed Ration (TMR) on dry matter intake, feed conversion ratio and protein efficiency ratio in Beetal kids. This whole study was carried out under intensive feeding system i.e. stall fed conditions where Beetal kids were kept in stalls for feeding purposes. Conventional feeding method (control group), Hay based TMR (T1) and Fresh fodder based TMR (T2) were the experimental diets given to the selected Beetal kids which were randomly distributed in the treatment groups on basis of average body weight, gender and age. The kids under treatment groups T1 and T2 showed 6.84% and 11.30%, respectively higher total dry matter intake (DMI in kg) over the control group. Feed conversion ratio (FCR) was significantly better in animals fed T1 (P<0.05) over the T2 and control group. Protein efficiency ratio (PER) was also found to be significantly higher in T1 group (P<0.01) than T2 and control group.
