Assessment of feeding of Moringa leaves on growth performance of goat kids

Choudhari DM, Nandre DR and PP Patil
The field assessment of feeding Moringa leaves was conducted in the Dhule district of Maharashtra State, to perceive the influence of Moringa leaves feeding on weight gain in goat kids. Goat kids were selected randomly from two villages of Dhule District, one is from Dhule Tahsil (Chaugaon) and the second one is from Sindkheda Tahasil (Tavkheda), respectively. 26 local goat kids were selected from similar age groups and divided into two groups of 13 animals in each village. First group treatment T1 not fed Moringa leaf, which is farmers' practice i.e grazing in that particular area. Second group treatment T2 fed Moringa leaves 12.5 parts of concentrate or 50 percent of concentrate feed with farmer practice for 90 days (3rd month to 6th Month). This assessment was conducted during the years 2021-22 and 2022-23, respectively. The total body weight increased percentage during the assessment period in treatment T2 (8.62%) is slightly higher than the treatment T1. In conclusion, it is sought to make the farmers supplement the Moringa leaves to goat kids in their feed to hasten the weight gain.
