Effect of 2 types of housing and 2 concentrate feeds on growth of cross bred calves



Effect of 2 types of housing and 2 concentrate feeds on growth of cross bred calves



Indian Journal of Animal Sciences 53(6): 591-595



The effect of 2 types of housing, i.e. conventional, tin-roofed, well-ventilated shed and thatched shed with woven bamboo sides and slotted floor, and 2 types of feed, i.e., cow-concentrate pellets and calf-starter mash, was assessed on the growth of cross-bred calves of above 3 mo. of age for 5 mo. The conventional housing (271 g gain in body weight/day as against 150 g/day in bamboo shed) and calf-starter feeding (220 g gain in body weight/day as against 202 g/day for pellets) favored better growth. In combination these 2 treatments produced a better effect (287 g/day gain in body weight) than the combined effect of either alone.
