EFFECT OF FEEDING OF LACTOBACILLUS ACIDOPHILUS MILK ON GROWTH RATE OF CALVESM.P. Saindane, P.T. Dhole, M.G. Mote and S.A. Daghe
The study was carried out under two treatments, calves fed with Lactobacillus acidophilus Milk as first group (Treatment) and calves fed with skim milk as second group (control). Calves fed with Lactobacillus aadophdus milk showed significantly higher weekly body weight at 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12th week of age than calves fed with skimmed milk. Also the calves showed significantly higher daily weight gain at all age interval except '0 to 3' week interval. The results thus show that the Lactobacillus acidoplulus milk fed to young calves could increase the final body weight.
