Abstract:
A trial of 90 days was conducted on 24 male Corriedale lambs divided in four groups of six lambs each, to study the effect of feeding probiotic mix and fibrolytic enzyme mix on gut health. A complete feed was prepared containing paddy straw 50 parts and concentrate mixture 50 parts on dry matter basis as per ICAR, 2013 with supplementation of probiotics mix (T1) and exogenous fibrolytic enzyme mix (T2) and Combination of probiotics mix and exogenous fibrolytic enzyme mix (T3) while complete feed without supplementation served as control (T0). Significantly (P<0.01) higher values of clean wool yield, skirting yield, fibre length, diameter and medullation in feed additive supplemented groups (T1, T2 and T3) in comparison to control (T0). Whereas the other qualitative wool traits like staple length, crimps, grease and scouring (%) were found to be non-significant in statistical terms between control and feed additive supplemented groups.
