EFFECT OF FICUS SUR (CV. FORSSK) FRUITS SUPPLEMENTATION ON FEED INTAKE, MILK YIELD AND COMPOSITION, AND SENSORY ATTRIBUTES OF HORRO COWS

Abstract:

An experiment was conducted in Horro Guduru Zone, at Guduru Animal Production and Research Center (GAPRC) of Wollega University to evaluate the effect of Ficus sur (Cv. Forssk) fruits supplementation on feed intake, milk yield and composition, and sensory attributes of Horro cows. Twelve healthy lactating Horro cows of similar lactation stage, body weight and condition were selected from GAPRC. All of the selected cows were in early (one weak to 10days) lactation stage. The experiment had three treatments with four replications by using a randomized complete block design to which 2-5 parities were used as blocking factor, and three cows were used per parity. The treatments were: T1. Rhodes grass hay +1.7kg Oat grain +0.8kg Noug seed cake, T2. Rhodes grass hay +0.56kg Noug seed cake+0.97kg oat grain +0.97kg Ficus sur fruits and T3. Rhodes grass hay +0.8kg Noug seed cake+ 1.7kg Ficus sur fruits. The experiment was conducted for 60 days, out of which 15 days were for adaptation and 45 days were for actual experiment. Except crude protein intake, there were significant (P
