Effect of industrially discarded guar seed cyamopsis tetragonoloba l taub vis a vis protected guar meal on rumen metabolic profile and blood biochemical constituents in growing buffalo calves



Effect of industrially discarded guar seed cyamopsis tetragonoloba l taub vis a vis protected guar meal on rumen metabolic profile and blood biochemical constituents in growing buffalo calves



Indian Veterinary Journal 66(2): 149-153



Twenty growing buffalo calves were divided into four groups of five each according to their body weights. They were offered four dietary treatments viz, raw guar seed (RGS), boiled guar seed (BGS), raw guar meal (RGM) and protected guar meal (PGM) with weighed quantity of wheat straw in the ratio 60 : 40 on ME basis for 93 days so as to supply 220 Kcal ME/W.degree. kg.75. The guar meal protein was protected with 1.5% formaldehyde per 100g protein. The experimental diets did not differ among themselves with respect to the production of ruminal ammonia nitrogen, volatile fatty acids and pH. Ruminal total nitrogen was significantly (P < 0.05) higher in guar seed fed calves as compared to guar meal fed calves irrespectively or higher degradability of guar meals at the rumen level. boiling of guar seed or protection of guar meal with formaldehyde did not bring out any major change in the blood biochemical constituents (total protein, serum albumin, ammonia nitrogen, plasma glucose, SGPT, creatinine and plasma cholesterol) except urea nitrogen and serum globulin which was significantly (P < 0.05) higher in buffalo calves fed raw guar meal.
