During early lactation high producing animals may undergo negative energy balance (NEB) which is having ill-effect on health of animal. Considering this, present investigation was undertaken to assess the effect of supplementation of bypass fatty acids and Tinospora cordifolia on body parameters of lactating Murrah buffaloes. Twenty freshly calved and healthy buffaloes were selected from institutional herd of NDRI, Karnal and divided into four groups having five buffaloes each on the basis of their previous milk yield, body weight and parity. Four groups were treated as T0 (control), T1 (fatty acid), T2 (Tinospora) and T3 (mix) and were fed with specific amount of supplements for 90 days. T0 was kept without any supplementation and given standard feed (ICAR-2013 standards) whereas T1, T2 and T3 were supplemented with 150gm of bypass fatty acids, 150gm of Tinospora and combination of 150gm bypass fatty acids and 150gm Tinospora, respectively. Results showed significant (P<0.05) improvement in BCS of buffaloes and decreased rate of reduction of body weight in treatment group buffaloes as compared to control group. On the basis of results, it was concluded that bypass fatty acids and Tinospora cordifolia supplementation helps in attaining good body conditions in lactating Murrah buffaloes.
