Effect of some commonly used galactagogues on different blood biochemical constituents of lactating buffaloes

Effect of some commonly used galactagogues on different blood biochemical constituents of lactating buffaloes

Indian Veterinary Journal 70(5): 441-444

Studies were conducted on sixteen lactating buffaloes divided randomly into four equal and comparable groups to assess the effect of some commonly used galactagogues on milk production and certain blood biochemical constituents. The animals in control group were provided feed daily without galactagogues. In other three groups various galactagogues viz, Galog (Indian Herbs) 50 g, Hi-milk (Vet Pharma) 50 g and Milkup (Haryana Vet Health Product) 30 g were fed daily along with concentrate mixture at the time of milking for 20 consecutive days and certain blood biochemical parameters of all the experimental animals were estimated at the end of 90 days trial at 4 h post feeding. The differences were statistically not significant (P gt 0.05) in all the treatment groups for total protein, urea nitrogen, ammonia nitrogen, cholesterol, SGOT and SGPT except blood glucose, serum creatinine and circulating biogenic amines. The milk yield increased significantly (P lt 0.05) with galactagogues treatment, whereas biogenic amines level decreased. It seems galactagogues have some inhibitory effect on biogenic amines production whereas they enhance the milk production.
