Abhishek Kumar Singh, Vishwabandhu Chaturvedi, Putan Singh, Shilpi Kerketta.


There are controversies regarding superiority in nutrient utilization between cross bred cattle and buffaloes. Therefore, present experiment was carried out to compare cross bred cattle and buffaloes for nutrient utilization and nitrogen balance by feeding three different TMR (ratios of concentrate and roughage). Six cross bred cattle and six buffaloes (about 2 years old) were randomly divided into three homogenous groups following 3×3 switch over design. Experimental feeding consists of feeding three ratio of concentrate (C) and roughage (R) (i.e.50C:50R; 20C:80R and 80C:20R) as TMR alternately to each group. The total DM (Kg/d) and DMI/Kg W0.75 were significantly (p
