Abstract:
The present investigation was carried out to study “Effect of Garlic (Allium sativum) Supplementation on The Growth Performance and Dry Matter Intake in Buffalo Calves at Organized Farm”. Twelve buffalo calves of 5 to 6 months age were selected and distributed into four treatments T0, T1, T2 and T3 respectively, for the experimental period of 90 days. The objectives of the present research were to study the effect of garlic powder supplementation on growth performance and dry matter intake of buffalo calves. T0 was considered as control and T1, T2 and T3 were supplemented with garlic powder at the rate of 200, 300 and 400 mg per kg body weight, respectively in concentrate mixture. Results of the present investigation show significant improvement (P< 0.05) in the body weight, weight gain, body length, height at wither, chest girth and belly girth of buffalo calves of garlic powder supplemented group over control group and Dry mater intake (DMI) of treatment T2 and T1 shows superior significant difference over control treatment T0. It was observed that the T2 group showed significant (P< 0.05) growth over other two garlic supplemented group i.e. T1 and T3.
