Abstract: Present study was conducted at MRCSG Shuhama to study the effect of concentrate and probiotics supplementation on the performance of does during periparturient period. Twenty four pregnant healthy Boar x local cross does in the last month of gestation (day 120) were selected randomly and allotted to 4 treatment groups (T1, T2, T3 and T4) of 6 animals each. The does were maintained under stall feeding conditions and offered a daily ration consisting of oats hay @ 1.2 kg/head/day and commercial pelleted feed @ 577.5 g/head/day during periparturient period (one month pre-partum to one month post-partum). Does in treatment groups T1 were offered normal daily ration without supplementation. In T2 group were offered normal ration with concentrate @ 150 gram /head/day, T3 group were offered normal ratio with concentrate @ 150 gram/head/day and probiotic @ 2.5 gram/head/day and in T4 groups were offered normal ratio with concentrate 150g + probiotic @ 4 gram/head/day. Probiotic = Saccharomyces cerevisiae x1010 CFU. Colostrum fat, protein SNF and TS percent was significantly (p<0.05) higher in T2, T3 and T4 as compared to T1 (control) groups on 1st and 3rd day. More ever there was non-significant change in the milk fat, protein SNF and TS percent composition on 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th days of lactation. On the 1st day of lactation colostrum fat percent was highest in T4 group as 8.83±0.13 while as colostrum protein, SNF and TS was highest in T3 group as 9.43±0.65, 20.11±0.62 and 24.33±0.81%, respectively and lowest in T1 (control) group as 7.56±0.17, 7.01±0.65, 17.15±0.45 and 21.28±0.70 %, respectively.
