Abstract:
A lack of systematic and appropriate feeding strategy causes production and performance retardation leading to suboptimal economic gains to livestock farmers. The study was conducted to evaluate the effects of a novel and complete health supplement Protein C (Hester Biosciences Ltd.) on growth performance and economic efficiency of semi intensively grown goats in field condition of Uttar Pradesh. Protein C is a complete feed supplement with added benefits of Propylene glycol, biotin and micronized minerals in addition to rumen protected protein. Total 10 growing goat kids BW 10-15 kg were randomly divided into 2 groups of 5 animals each Animals in the control group (I) were maintained as per farmer practice, while animals in treatment group were additionally supplemented with Protein C @20 ml/animal/day. Body weight change, skin coat, hoof and horn condition and disease incidences were closely monitored for 30 days trial period after a preliminary period of 14 days. After the experiment, higher final Body weight (P>0.05) was observed for treatment group T2 (12.38±.57 kg) as compared to control T1 (11.64±1.18) the initial BW being similar i.e. 11.12±.51kg and 11.10±1.17 kg for T2 and T1 respectively. A growth of 11.33% in total body weight has been recorded in treatment group in comparison to 4.8% growth in control group animals. Skin, hoof and horn condition were improved in treatment group in comparison to control group animals. A supplementation of Protein C at dose of 20 ml/day resulted in higher body weight gain in the animals with overall improvement in general body conditions.
