Abstract:
24 crossbred animals (8 to 12 months of age) were divided into four groups of six randomly in order to evaluate their performance in the experiment. Group 1 (Gr-1) consisted of 100% treated residual feed, Group 2 (74% treated feed), Group 3 (51%) treated feed, Group 4 (100%) green fodder, and Group 4 (Control). 1.5% urea+5% molasses+0.5% salt, 1.5% urea+5% molasses+1.5% salt, 1.5% urea+10% molasses+0.5% salt, 1.5% urea+10% molasses+1.5% salt, 5% molasses+0.5% salt, and 10% molasses+0.5% salt, respectively, were applied to the remaining feed S-1, S-2, S-3, S-4, S-5, and S-6. For the first, second, third, and fourth groups of animals, the average weight gain for the S1 treatment group was 1.661.60, 3.501.56, 2.660.0.66, and 3.330.61 correspondingly. For the S2 group of animals, weight gains were 0.330.61, 4.001.84, 2.330.67, and 3.660.67, respectively. For the S3 group, the results were 0.500.56a, 3.330.55b, 2.830.70ab, and 3.660.80b, respectively. The weight gains for the S4 group were 1.661.49, 6.661.60, 6.160.49, and 6.50.70, respectively. For the S5 treatment group, the weight gains were 1.500.67a, 7.000.70b, 6.001.12ab, and 5.50.62b, respectively. For the sixth group of animals, weight gains were 1.660.98, 5.551.52, 4.830.83, and 5.330.49 for each group, respectively. Weight increases made it clear that total feeding of treated feed containing urea and molasses is not acceptable, but giving animals fresh green fodder in half portions did not have any negative effects on performance or feeding costs while also utilising waste.
