An experiment was conducted on twelve cows for six weeks. These animals were further divided into four groups each having three animals. The four treatments were concentrate mixture with green grass (T1), concentrate mixture without green grass (T2), ground-nut cake with green grass (T3), and ground-nut cake without green grass (T4). The DCP requirements were met as per feeding standards recommended by Sen and Ray. At the end of each period, metabolism trials were conducted by conventional method. Nitrogen, phosphorus and calcium balance were positive in all the groups of cows. Treatment T1 and T2 have increased the milk yield while reverse was true for treatment T3 and T4.
