Abstract:
The supplementation study was carried out in 20 advanced pregnant buffaloes selected from the area of study. Availability of major elements (Ca, P and Mg), trace elements (Fe, Cu, Mn, Zn,) for animals were calculated on the basis of mineral composition of feedstuffs and feed intake. The mineral availability of individual animal was compared with the nutrient requirements calculated with the help of feeding standards. Results indicated that there was shortage of phosphorus 40.34%, zinc 86.34% and copper 46.26%. But calcium, magnesium, iron, and manganese was shown to be supplied in excess 394.87%, 177.22%, 309.09% and 16.22% respectively on daily basis.The amount of strategic mineral supplement containing deficient minerals was added in the normal routine diet of advanced pregnant buffaloes. Supplementation of phosphorus, zinc and copper during gestation period of buffalo was found beneficial and has successfully prevented the occurrence of hemoglobinuria in advanced pregnant buffaloes.
