Abstract:
A study was carried out on sixteen lactating Gir cows were divided into four groups on basis of nearest their body weight and milk production at Dairy farm (LPM Deptt.) SKNCOA, Jobner (Rajasthan) and subjected to four dietary treatments were formulated. i.e. Wheat straw ad-lib.+ Green Lucerne (5 kg) + Concentrate (T1), T1 + Urea fed 75 g/cow (T2), T1 + Mustard oil cake fed 614 g/cow (T3) and T1 + Guar meal fed 505 g/cow (T4) and the studied for their economics of milk production fed protein supplements of Gir cows during winter season. Average daily milk production (litre/cow) was significantly (P<0.05) higher in T4 (7.85 litre) than T3 (7.13 litre), T2 (7.05 litre) and T1 (6.67 litre). Total feed cost/litre of milk was Rs. 29.86, Rs. 24.19, Rs. 28.29 and Rs. 25.98 in T1, T2, T3 and T4 groups, respectively. T4 (Guar meal) group as compared to other groups more economical and best performance. It was found that T2 (Urea) group is economical but not better effect on milk yield of Gir cow. Total feed cost/litre of milk was Rs. 29.86, Rs. 24.19, Rs. 28.29 and Rs. 25.98 in T1, T2, T3 and T4 groups, respectively.
