Author(s): AS Awale, NR Karambele, BN Ramteke, KN Yadav, GM Gadegaonkar and SD Jagadale
Abstract: In this study, 12 crossbred cows were divided into two equal Groups viz. Control (T0) and Treatment (T1) and observations were recorded for 91 days. The cows from group T0 were fed with concentrate mixtureas per BIS 1990 and roughage as per balanced ration requirements. GroupT1 received same diet as that of T0along with 15g dried yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae & Kluyveromycescerevisiae) and fungi (Aspergillus oryzae and Aspergillus niger) per cow per day. The 4% FCM yield was significantly (p<0.05) higher in treatment group over control group. The DM, DCP and TDN intake was significantly (p<0.01) higher in treatment group as that of control group. The milk composition parameters viz. protein, fat, lactose, total solids and SNF were found statistically similar in treatment and control group. The CF and CP digestibility has improved in treatment group. The economics of milk production showed ₹ 12.65 increase in profit in the treatment group. From this study it is concluded that supplementation of 15 g of dried yeast and fungi /cow/day is cost effective and beneficial for enhancing cow performance.
