Abstract:
The present study was conducted to study the effect of monensin supplementation on reproductive development of male kids. Eighteen weaned kids aged 3 months were divided into three groups. The control animals were fed according to the requirement of ICAR (2013) standards, with 40:60 ratios of concentrate and green roughage. The treatment group was fed similar to control with addition of 10 mg/head/d and 20 mg/head/d of monensin in T1 and T2 group respectively. One month period of adaptation allowed before starting the experiment. The supplementation experiment was started at the age of four months for sixty days. Scrotal biometry were done in fortnight intervals for scrotal circumference, testis length and testis width. it was found that Scrotal circumference was higher (P<0.05) in T2 (15.03±0.44) as compare to control (14.02±0.35) and T1 (14.36±0.32) whereas testis length and width did not differ (P>0.05).
