Abstract: Determining the effects of feeding roasted guar korma at protein levels of 51% (E1) and 100% (E2) to female buffalo calves instead of groundnut cake (C) was the aim of this study. Pulled guar gum leaves are used to make roasted guar korma, a high-protein vegetable feed. Eighteen female buffalo calves were randomly assigned to each of the three treatments and placed in a 151-day growth study. All groups consumed comparable amounts of concentrate, wheat straw, and total DM. A digestibility trial was conducted at the end of the experiment, and it was shown that there was a statistically insignificant difference (P<0.05) between the nutritional value of the diet and the digestibility of near nutrients and cell wall elements between the four treatment groups. Over a 150-day period, the average daily rise and total live weight gain were significantly larger in E2 than in C, but similar to E1 in both groups. The calves in the three treatment groups' FCR and FCE did not differ noticeably from one another, yet since E2's FCR was lower than the other two groups', E2 had a higher FCE. E2 had lower dry matter and daily ration expenses per kilogramme of body weight growth than the other two groups. As a result, growing buffalo calves can add 50 or 100% of their diet to include roasted guar korma as a source of protein without affecting their diet's DM consumption, nutrient utilization, growth, or feeding costs.
