    Departmental Achievements:

    1. In urban and peri-urban areas majority of farmers follow sani method followed by moist and dry concentrate mixture in feeding dairy animals. Feeding complete feed system in dairy animals was observed to be superior over conventional feeding system in terms of dry matter intake and digestibility of different nutrients. Further ruminal biochemical parameters viz. total nitrogen, protein nitrogen, TVFA and ruminal enzymes viz. carboxymethyl cellulase, xylanase, α and β glycosidase were significantly higher in animals fed complete ration, which may be advantageous in improving the utilization of different nutrients for production purpose. The complete feed with green fodder was found superior in terms of improvement in milk production in crossbred cattle as compared to conventional feeding system and also complete feed without green fodder.

    2. The enzymes produced by the ruminal microbes digest fibrous feeds in ruminants. Techniques for the estimation of fibre degrading ruminal enzymes have been standardized.Maximum activity of fibre degrading enzymes was found in the particulate material (PM) fraction at 2 hrs post feeding. The activity of xylanase and β-glucosidase was significantly (P< 0.05) higher in animals fed high roughage ration. The difference in the activity of various enzymes with high roughage or high concentrate ration could be the result of change in microbial population affected by diet composition. Mixture of Bacopa monneiri (brahmi), Eclipta alba (bhringraj) and Urtica dioica (bichchu) herbs at 1 % level in the concentrate mixture as feed additive in the ration of heifers resulted in better growth and nutrient utilization.

    3. The transgenic cotton seed was found to contain higher percentage of crude protein and ether extract as compared to non-transgenic cotton seed. Both transgenic and non-transgenic cotton seed had similar nutritional values in terms of feed intake, nutrients oligestibility, milk yield and milk constituents and without any adverse effect on health status of buffaloes as assessed from hematological constituents.
