Experimental introduction of acute toxicity in buffalo calves by feeding Parthenium hysterophorus Linn



Experimental introduction of acute toxicity in buffalo calves by feeding Parthenium hysterophorus Linn



Indian Journal of Animal Sciences 58(6): 731-734



A total of 18 male, 1-year-old buffaloes were not given or given fresh chaffed parthenium weed 10 g/kg body weight for 8 weeks (group 1), an aqueous extract of parthenium as stomach drench 10 g/kg body weight for 8 weeks (group 2) or sun-dried, powdered parthenium 10 g/kg body weight for 20 weeks (group 3) with the normal diet of green fodder, paddy straw and concentrates. Buffaloes in group 2 had symptoms and lesions of acute toxicity including itching, alopecia and skin depigmentation.
