Impact of Trace Minerals Supplement on Reproductive Performance of Crossbred Cattle
First Online 15-07-2021|
Methods: Hence, present research trial was carried out at the Dairy farm of Banaras Hindu University, Dist. Varanasi (Uttar Pradesh). 24 Cross bred (Sahiwal × HF) non-cyclic, non-pregnant cattle, ranging 3 - 6 years of age were randomly selected to assess the role of trace minerals in fertility of infertile cows.
Result: It is observed from the study, total 24 infertile crossbred cows were selected to induce oestrus taken for correction of anoestrosity with incorporated minerals. Total 8 out of 24 animals exhibited oestrus symptoms after the treatment. Among the animals received incorporated mineral (treatment group) 50% showed the oestrus symptoms. Among the animals under control 16.66% came into heat.
