Author(s): Ritu Raj, Anshu Rahal and Yanshi
Abstract: This research was conducted to study effect of feeding giloy (Tinospora cordifolia) and mint (Mentha arvensis) on growth parameter in crossbred calves. Group I was taken as control while Group II was supplemented with Tinospora cordifolia @ 4% of concentrate; group III with Mentha arvensis @ 4% of concentrate and group IV with both Tinospora cordifolia and Mentha arvensis @ 2% of concentrate each. The dry matter intake(Kg) and dry matter intake(g)/W 0.75Kg in group III was significantly (P<0.05) higher than group I but no significant difference was found between group II and IV. Body weight gain was significantly higher in group IV than group I and III. Giloy and/or mint can be fed to crossbred calves to improve growth in crossbred calves.
