Abstract

HERBAL ANTIBIOTIC GROWTH PROMOTER SUPPLEMENTATION TO IMPROVE GROWTH INDICES AND PERFORMANCE IN WEANED PIGS UPTO GROWER STAGE

Praveen Kumar, K. Ravikanth and Adarsh*

ABSTRACT

Objective of the trial was to study the growth promoting and performance enhancing activity of herbal antibiotic growth promoter AV/AGP/10 (M/S Ayurvet Limited, Baddi, India) in weaned pigs up to grower stage. 12 weaned pigs (Tamworth × Desi breed) of almost same age group (2-3month) and body weight were procured. All the 12 experimental piglets were randomly divided into 2 groups- group T1 and group T2 maintaining similar male:female ratio (n=6). Each group was allotted to different dietary treatments. Group T1 served as no treatment control group fed with basal ration only and group T2 piglets were supplemented with AV/AGP/10 (250g/tone of feed) (M/S Ayurvet Limited, Baddi, India). Growth and haemato biochemical parameter were studied for 90 days on fortnightly basis. Daily body weight gain and linear body measurements were high in AV/AGP/10 supplemented group T2. Feed conversion efficiency was significantly improved in AV/AGP/10 supplemented group T2. Haemato-biochemical parameters were improved and were in normal range in AV/AGP/10 supplemented group T2. AV/AGP/10 had improved the growth parameters and enhanced the feed efficiency in the piglets.

Keywords: Antibiotic growth promoter, growth rate, haemato-biochemical parameters
