Author(s): Om prakash choudhary, Dr. RP Jat and Subhash yadav
Abstract: A study was conducted on 20 lactating cows (in which 10 Crossbred and 10 Gir Cows) were divided into four groups on basis of nearest their body weight and milk yield/day at dairy farm (LPM) S.K.N. College of agriculture, Jobner (Rajasthan) and subjected to four dietary treatments were formulated. i.e. Green Lucerne (10 kg) + Wheat straw ad-lib.+ Concentrate (T1-CB), Green Lucerne (20 kg) + Wheat straw ad-lib.+ Concentrate (T2-CB), Green Lucerne (10 kg) + Wheat straw ad-lib.+ Concentrate (T3-GC) and Green Lucerne (20 kg) + Wheat straw ad-lib.+ Concentrate (T4-GC) and the studied for their behavioural pattern. Average maximum and minimum temperature (0C) was 25.60±0.245 and 15.64±0.285 in closed barn. DMI (kg/animal/day) was significantly (P<0.05) higher in T2 (12.77) than T1 (12.18), T4 (11.49) and T3 (11.07). Average eating time (minutes/day) was significantly (P<0.05) higher in T2 (307.70) than T1 (292.90), T4 (272.40) and T3 (266.60). Average resting time (minutes/day) was significantly (P<0.05) higher in T3 (688.20) than T4 (680.60), T1 (660.40) and T2 (653.50) during 24 hours.
