Abstract


The present study was undertaken to investigate the effect of probiotics and growth stimulants on the haematological status of Murrah buffalo. Eighteen Murrah buffalo were selected from LRC (Livestock Research Center) at Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel University of Agriculture & Technology Modipuram, Meerut and divided into three groups. Group T0(control)was fed normal basal diet, group T1 and T2 was fed one and two boluses of probiotics and growth stimulants, respectively. The blood parameters (TEC, TLC, Haemoglobin, DLC, Packed cell volume, Albumin, Total protein, SGOT/ALT and SGPT/AST) were estimated. The supplementation of probiotics and growth stimulants had increase TEC, lymphocyte per cent and PCV in group T1 and T2. The monocytes and neutrophils per cent decreased in group T1 and T2. Plasma protein level increased by probiotics and growth stimulants supplementation whereas, albumin, ALT, AST and haematological variable were not affected. "Ecotas bolus" A combination of probiotics and growth stimulants improved haematology and blood biochemical variables effectively.
