Abstract:
The present research work entitled “Effect on digestibility of Weaned Kids of Sirohi Goat Fed with Concentrates and Mungbean straw (Vigna radiata)” was carried out to study the effect of concentrate and Mungbean straw (Vigna radiata) feeding on digestibility in terms of Sirohi goat kids. Twenty four Sirohi kids of one month of age were randomly selected and divided into three groups of each having eight kids at the goat farm of S.K.N. College of Agriculture, Jobner. Group T1 weaned at 60 days of age, T2 at 75 days and T3 at 90 days. The concentrate supplement given @ 1.5% of body weight and Mungbean straw ad-libtum to all kids during whole experimental period. Other management practices were similar for each groups. A digestibility trial was conducted at the last week of experiment. The dry matter, crude protein, ether extract, crude fibre, nitrogen free extract and total ash in concentrate mixture was 90.39, 19.26, 3.60, 6.22, 60.42 and 10.50 and Mungbean straw 92.45, 8.9, 1.3, 40.2 39.9 and 9.7 per cent, respectively. The average digestibility of DM in T1, T2 and T3 was 63.50±0.72, 60.27±1.93 and 56.80±0.52 percent, respectively which was significantly higher in T1 group than T2 and T3 groups. The digestibility of CP in T1, T2 and T3 was 64.10±0.026, 62.19±0.026 and 60.42±0.041 per cent, respectively which was significantly different (P<0.05) in T1 group than T2 and T3 groups. The digestibility of crude fiber (CF) in T1, T2 and T3 was 53.58±0.032, 51.33±0.047 and 50.27±0.072 per cent, respectively and was significantly higher (P<0.05) in T1 group than T2 and T3. The digestibility of ether extract (EE) in T1, T2 and T3 was 68.10±0.133, 66.44±0.124 and 64.49±0.115 per cent, respectively which was significantly higher (P<0.05) in T1 group than T2 and T3 groups. The digestibility of nitrogen free extract (NFE) in T1, T2 and T3 was 55.35±0.041, 53.57±0.041 and 52.15±0.037 per cent, respectively which was significantly higher (P<0.05) in T1 group than T2 and T3 groups.
