Article
Background: Nursery phase is one of most critical phase in the production of stockable seed materials in carp culture. Generally, it is observed that the recovery of carp during spawn to fry is very low in farmers’ practice because of unavailability of nutrition rich feed with essencial macro and micronutrients. Methods: To address this problem, a...

A 120‐day feeding trial was conducted to assess the effects of dietary supplementa‐ tion of zinc oxide (ZnO) and selenium (Se) nanoparticles (NPs) on growth, immuno‐ logical and enzymatic profiles in rohu, Labeo rohita. Fishes were fed with basal diet incorporated with laboratory‐synthesized nanoparticles, viz., zinc oxide nanoparti‐ cles—10 mg/kg...

This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of dietary emamectin benzoate (EB) levels on immune responses, serum enzyme activities, and retention of EB in muscle tissue to establish the withdrawal period in rohu, Labeo rohita juveniles (avg. wt. 18 ± 0:11 g). To ascertain this, 450 healthy L. rohita juveniles were fed with EB in graded doses vi...

Mahua oil cake (Bassia latifolia) is one of the non-conventional ingredients which are generally used as manure for horticultural crops. However, mahua oil cake can also be used as cheap source of nutrient for fish replacing conventional plant ingredient by solid state fermentation. Solid state fermentation of mahua oil cake was done by mixed strai...

Spontaneous spawning of wild caught and domesticated mola carplet, Amblypharyngodon mola was attempted in controlled condition using an aquatic plant hydrilla, Hydrilla verticillata as a modified habitat. Growth performance of hatched larvae revealed that the larval growth (weight gain %) was significantly higher (p <0.05) with a mixed diet (63.76...

The objective of the experiment was to study the growth performance and leather quality of mithun (Bos frontalis) and its comparison with Tho-tho cattle (Bos indicus) of India. Mithun and Tho-tho cattle of NorthEastern hilly (NEH) region of India were individually fed on tree leaves/shrubs (Quercus polystachya, Lagerstroemia spaciosa and Ficus hirt...
Article
Background: There is a scope of increasing the aquaculture production by use of fish feed produced from non-conventional ingredients and also improvement in the quality of feed by solid-state fermentation. The present study was conducted to investigate the effect of solid-state fermented aquafeed on growth performance, digestive enzymes and innate...

Three types of iso-nitrogenous floating feeds for Indian Major Carps (IMC) were formulated and prepared in extruder by using different feed ingredients. The first feed (SMF) was formulated with soyabean meal as main protein source whereas 2nd (GNF) and 3rd (TCF) feed were formulated by replacing a part of soyabean meal with alternative feed ingredi...
Article
A study was conducted to assess the effect of liquid semen preservation on semen quality parameters (SQPs) such as forward progressive motility, livability, acrosomal integrity and total morphological abnormality at refrigerated temperature in mithun. Good quality ejaculates (50) were collected and preserved at refrigerated temperature (5°C) for 72...

Six fibre degrading fungus were isolated from rumen of mithun (Bos frontalis) at National Research Centre on Mithun, Jharnapani, Medziphema, Nagaland using specific media for rumen fungus. These isolated fungal cultures showed higher fibre degrading enzymes like CM cellulase, Xylanase and Avicelase activity. Addition of fungal culture in the mixed...

This work was done to study the bacterial diversity of mithun (Bos frontalis) fed on mixed tree leaves and rice straw based diet. Genomic DNA was extracted from the rumen liquor of mithun, 16S rDNA sequences were amplified, cloned and randomly selected for sequencing. The nearest neighbors were retrieved from the NCBI through a BLAST search and a p...
Article
Mithuns (32) were divided in to 3 groups, viz. heifer (8), oestrus cows (8), pregnant cows (8) and non pregnant cows (8) based on per rectal examination and farm records and these were clinically normal. The blood samples were examined for the biochemical parameters such as alkaline phosphatase (ALK), SGPT (ALT), SGOT (AST), total protein, albumin,...
Article
Toassess the growth, nutrient utilization and rumen fermentation pattern in growing mithun (Bosfrontalis) calves fed on different levels of dietary protein fed on paddy straw based diet, 21 male mithun of about 10-12 months of age were divided into three groups. The animals of eachgroup was fed on rice straw-based iso-energetic diet containing thre...
Article
The present study was conducted to assess carcass characteristics and meat quality in mithun (Bos frontalis) fed on tree leaves based ration with an objective of comparison with local cattle (Bos indicus). It was concluded that, that the measurement of body parts like head weight, horn length, horn circumference, limbs weight and tail length were s...

Rumen of cattle harbors many microorganisms responsible for bioconversion of nutrients into a source of energy for the animals. In recent years many rumen microbes have been isolated and characterized by sequence analysis of 16S ribosomal RNA gene. Some of the microbes have also been recommended as feed additives for improving the overall growth or...

Mithun (Bos frontalis) is primarily reared in free-grazing systems and several tropical foliages are important feed resources for it throughout the year. Inadequate information is available on the nutritive value of most of these foliages. This study aimed to determine the nutrient composition and in situ degradability of dry matter (DM) and crude...

The present investigation was carried out to determine the nutrient composition, macro and micro mineral content and nutritive values of foliages consumed by mithun. Crude protein (CP), ether extract (EE), acid detergent fibre (ADF), neutral detergent fibre (NDF) and ash content of foliages were found to be very between 11.8 to 26.4, 1.91 to 2.81,...
Article
Foliages of indigenous trees and shrubs provide sufficient nutrients to sustain the economic rearing of Mithun (Bos frontalis) and other livestock species in North-Eastern hill region of India. However, the concentration of foliar nutrient shows considerable seasonal, inter- and/or intra-species variations. Therefore, the study was carried out to d...
