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 <em>Moringa oleifera</em> leaf powder (0%, 10%, 15% and 20%) by weight basis in feed. A total of twenty four, 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 up to 9 months of age. The investigation of above research work showed that goats fed on diets containing <em>Moringa oleifera</em> leaf powder (MOLP) gains significantly higher body weight and more body weight gain per day than that of goats feeding on control diet (0% MOLP).Body weight at the end of experiment was found to be 10.93±0.26, 12.05±0.19, 12.28±0.07, 12.03±0.16 kg respectively for T0, T1, T2 and T3 groups. 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 overall result on growth performance was shown by the goats fed with 15% MOLP.
