Abstract:
Plant extracts have been used as effective additives in swine industry for potential beneficial effects on better pig performance. Changes in the morphology of GI tract and immune status results in better nutrient absorption, decreased gut secretion and increase the overall performance of the pig. Hence, an experiment was conducted to assess the effect of ginger and garlic powder on haemato-biochemical parameters in weaned pigs. A total number of 27 weaned pigs were randomly allotted into 3 treatments with 3 replicates each, with 3 pigs per replicate and arranged in a completely randomized design. Statistical analysis of the data revealed that supplementation of ginger and garlic don’t have much effect on the haemato-biochemical indices of weaner pigs during post weaning period, however further study with more number of animals and dose variations might be helpful to ascertain the exact quantity to be incorporate in the feed and beneficial effect of dietary supplementation of ginger and garlic in weaner pigs.
