Abstract

The study was conducted to evaluate the influence of probiotic supplementation on weight gain, blood biochemical and hematological indices of crossbred dairy goat kids. Sixteen (16) crossbred Anglo-Nubian x Saanen dairy goat kids, 3 to 4 months old, ranging from 19 to 23kg were randomly assigned into four treatments following a complete randomized design replicated 4 times. The dietary treatments were: control-w/o probiotics (T1), Lactic acid bacteria (T2), yeast (T3) and multi-strain probiotics (T4). Experimental animals were supplemented orally with 6ml of 5x109cfu/ml probiotics for 9 weeks. Daily ration was composed of 1kg mixed concentrate (50:50 of Leucaenaleucocephala dried leaves and pollard), and 4 kg fresh Pennisetumpurpureum and Gliciridiasepium leaves. All the data collected were processed and analyzed using SPSS version 20. Result revealed that treatments fed with probiotics had significantly (P≤0.05) higher weight gain compared to the control. Significant effect on plasma urea nitrogen (PUN) and triglyceride were noted during 30th and 60th day of post-probiotic feeding. Concentrations of glucose and cholesterol remained unchanged throughout the experimental feeding trial. The finding suggests, under the environmental condition of the experiment, that probiotic supplements used in this study could enhance the performance of crossbred dairy goat kids through improving their weight gain and metabolism.

Keywords: Probiotic supplements, weight gain, blood biochemical, hematological indices, crossbred dairy goat kids.
