Title : IMPACT OF TREATED WASTE WATER INTAKE ON DRY MATTER, WATER INTAKE AND PARASITOLOGICAL STATUS OF CROSS BRED GOAT (ALPINE X BEETAL) KIDS

Abstract :

To study the effect of purified waste water on dry matter intake, water intake and endoparasitic status/load, 12 crossbred kids (Alpinex Beetle) were selected from the Livestock Research Center of ICAR-National Dairy Research Institute, Karnal during January to March 2019. These kids were further divided into 2 groups comprising 6 kids in each group (control and treatment group). The dry matter and water intake of the crossbred kids non-significantly (p<0.05) decreased in the treatment group as compared to the control group kids provided with fresh water. The growth parameter which included body weight, length, height and girth remained non-significantly (p<0.05) different in treatment groups as compared to the control groups. The parasitological infestation was found to be positive for Moneizia expansa and Giardia sp. in some of the faecal samples of both the groups i.e. control as well as treatment group. Hence the purified waste water may be recommended as drinking water to the crossbred kids in the water scarce areas.
