Abstract

This paper deals with the preparation of panchakavya an indigenous formulation consisting of
products from cow viz., dung, urine, milk, curd and ghee and its effect on promotion of growth in
crossbred pigs. Panchakavya was found to have growth promoting properties especially in animals
with more native germplasm.
