Abstract:
The present experiment was conducted on growth performance of Sirohi kids at Livestock Farm Complex (LFC), College of Veterinary Science & Animal Husbandry, Rewa (M.P.). Twenty four Sirohi kids of 3-4 months age of either sex with uniform body size and weight were selected. They were randomly divided into two groups (Group 01 and Group 02) of 12 animals in each. Deworming and vaccination carried out routinely as per schedule. Pre adoption period of 15 days was given to kids before starting experiment. The kids were selected for the experiment was free from physiological, anatomical and infectious diseases. Group 01 allowed to rear on complete stall feeding with supplementation of commercial concentrate feed while group 02 allowed was browsing around farm premises. Kids were allowed to feed 2% commercial readymade concentrate feed (20% protein and ME 2240 kcal/kg) on dry matter basis and 2% as greens (daily 6 hours grazing). Data of body weight (kg), body length (cm), height at weithers (cm), heart girth (cm) was collected at monthly interval of experiment. Analysis of data of Sirohi kids revealed that average weight gain was significantly higher (p<0.05) in stall fed group as compared to grazing group. However, there was no significant difference in body length (cm), height at weithers (cm), heart girth (cm) between stall fed group and grazing group. Thus present study revealed that stall feeding system positively affect the body weight but didn’t affect the body morphometric parameters like body length (cm), height at weithers (cm), heart girth (cm).
