Influence of Bypass Fat Supplementation on Productive Performance and Economics of Lactating Cows
Keywords:Bypass fat, Economics, Lactating cows, Nutrient compositions, Productive performance
The present experiment was conducted on 20 healthy lactating cows of nearly similar age and stage of lactationÂ to study Bypass fat supplementation on Productive Performance and Economics in lactating cattle in UnnaoÂ district. Cows were divided into 2 groups (10 cows in each group), which T1 was fed through farmers practicesÂ (control) (Use of concentrate, wheat straw and fodder) and T2 group in addition to farmers practices wasÂ supplemented with Bypass fat (20 g/day milk yield for 60 days and Fenbendazole 3 gm tablet used orally asÂ dewormer at once). The results revealed that the milk yield and fat percent was significantly higher (P<0.05) inÂ T2 group as compared to T1. However, the Protein and SNF percent was non-significantly but numerically higherÂ in T2 group as compared to T1. The economics status of supplementation of bypass fat was 24 Rs/day /animalÂ with 77.41 per cent more return over the farmerâ€™s practices (T1). Based on the observations the bypass fatÂ supplementation to lactating cows is beneficial in terms of increasing milk production, fat percent and higherÂ over return.
