Abstract:
The objective of the present investigation was to study the effect of spirulina (Spirulina platensis) on growth performance of Osmanabadi kids in 90 days experimental period. In the present investigation a total of sixteen Osmanabadi kids of 3 months old age and similar average live body weight of 7.85±0.10 kg were selected and randomly divided into four similar groups (4 animals each) T1 (control), T2, T3 and T4 in such a way that groups had no significant difference in respect of average body weight and body conformation. The diet of all the experimental kids was similar but T2, T3 and T4 were additionally drenched with Spirulina platensis. The treatments T2, T3 and T4 were delivered as 0.5g/5ml, 1g/10ml and 1.5g/15ml solution of water, respectively. Completely randomised design was used for statistical analysis of means. The results showed that Spirulina (Spirulina platensis) drenched treatments were found significantly improved (P<0.05) live body weight, total weight gain, average daily weight gain, body length, body height and chest girth. Levels of total protein, globulin, haemoglobin and white blood cells are also found significant in spirulina supplemented groups. It was concluded that the drenching of 1g/10ml solution of water per day was beneficial and safe for the improvement of live body weight, body weight gain and body conformation of goat kids.
