Abstract:
The present experiment was conducted to investigate the effect of supplementing garlic powder (Allium sativum) on the performance of Sahiwal calves. Twelve healthy Sahiwal calves of both sexes of similar age and body weight were allocated to two experimental groups, control (T0) and treatment (T1) with six animals in each group. Calves of both groups were fed with a standard basal diet consisting of concentrate, green fodder, and paddy straw. While in the treatment group, garlic powder was supplemented @ 250 mg/kg body weight along with concentrate feed. The experiment was conducted as a feeding trial for eight fortnights and a digestibility trial thereafter for five days in the two experimental groups. Analysis of the variance of the data revealed that no significant (p>0.05) difference in respiration rate (breath per minute), pulse rate (beat/min), and rectal temperature (oF) between control (T0) and treatment (T1) in respect of fortnightly and overall values. The difference observed was statistically significant (p<0.01) between the control group (T0) and treatment group (T1) for initial and final total protein level, hemoglobin level and RBC level. Further it can be concluded that the supplementation of garlic powder at dosage of 250 mg/kg body weight in the Sahiwal calf ration it has a positive impact on total protein level, hemoglobin level and RBC level, while does not had any impact on serum Blood glucose.
