Effect of defaunation on nutrient digestibility and growth of Murrah buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) calves



Effect of defaunation on nutrient digestibility and growth of Murrah buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) calves



International Journal of Animal Sciences 9(2): 185-187



Male Murrah buffaloes, 1 year old, were defaunated with a solution of sodium lauryl sulfate (9 g/100 kg body weight) for 3 consecutive days. Half of the buffaloes were refaunated by inoculation with rumen liquor from a healthy buffalo. Digestibilities of DM, organic matter, CP, ether extract, total carbohydrates, NDF and ADF were 56.6, 59.1, 68.5, 70.4, 57.6, 48.7 and 35.3% in defaunated and 56.1, 58.6, 69.6, 69.4, 57.1, 48.2 and 35.6% in faunated buffaloes.
