Abstract:
The present research work was designed to evaluate the growth performance of growing female Black Bengal goat by using the four different concentration of Moringa oleifera leaf powder (0%, 10%,15% and 20%) by weight basis in feed. A total of 24, 4 to 5 months old goats having 6-8 kg body weight were procured and after 10 days of adjustment period they were randomly divided into four experimental groups. Different combinations of feed were offered to them for a period upto 9 months of age. The investigation of above research work showed that goats fed on diets containing Moringa oleifera leaf powder (MOLP) gains significantly higher body weight and more body weight gain than that of goats feeding on control diet (0% MOLP). It could be concluded that inclusion of MOLP at 10%, 15% and 20% in goats diet improves the growth performance than control diet however, the best result on growth performance was shown by the goats fed on 15% MOLP.
