Impact of feeding of different herbal galactogogues on milk mineral profiling of Sahiwal cattle

Author(s): Jyoti Srivastav, Sanjay Kumar and Tushar Saxena
Abstract: To evaluate the potential benefits of traditional herbs like Giloy (Tinospora cordifolia), Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum graecum) and Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) in the feeding of livestock, the present investigation was performed on 24 Sahiwal cattle of lactation age group during the summer season. The experimental cattle were randomly distributed into four dietary treatment groups composed with six animals in each group. The different dietary regimens used in the study were as follows: T0 (Control group); Basal diet, T1; Basal diet+100 g Fenugreek seed powder, T2; Basal diet+100 g Giloy stem powder and T3; Basal diet+100 g Shatavari root powder in the concentrate feed. The duration of the study was 120 days. Milk samples were collected at fortnightly interval to evaluate the major minerals viz. Ca and P along with micro elements Zn, Cu and Mg with the help of standard methods adopted in the laboratory. The statistical analysis of the data suggested non-significant effect of dietary supplementation of Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum graecum), Giloy (Tinospora cordifolia) and Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) on milk mineral profiling of lactating Sahiwal cattle.
