Abstract

A field survey was conducted in Majuli, Teok, Titabor, Mariani, Jorhat and Nakachari under the
five development circles of Jorhat district of Assam at random during the year 2005 -06 to get an
appraisal of the present feeding and management practices for the dairy animals in the form of a
questionnaire through personal contact. Sample of concentrate mixture and roughages offered to
the animals were collected, pooled and analyzed for proximate composition, neutral Detergent
Fibre and Acid Detergent Fibre. The present investigation revealed that the nutrient composition of
provided feed supplements is not up to the satisfaction for sustenance of good health and optimum
productivity of dairy animals of the district.
