Abstract:
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects that different levels of Neem (Azadirachta indica) leaves powder (NLP), Moringa oleifera powder (MOP) and coconut oil (CO) have on growth performance of growing calves. Twenty growing crossbred calves (6-12 months old) were divided into four equal groups, five animals in each group. The animals were randomly assigned one of the following four treatments: group T0 was control (without feed additives), T1: fed NLP@ 2% of dry matter basis (DMB), T2 fed MOP@ 2% of DMB and T3 fed CO@ 2% of DMB. Body weight of experimental animals was recorded every fortnightly by using electronic weighing balance. The data collected through this experiment was statistically analyzed and it is observed from the present experiment, feeding of Anti- nutritional factors containing feed additives shows significant (p<0.05) effect on body weight without negatively affecting nutrient fermentation and usage.
