Abstract

Twenty female Murrah buffalo calves (8-10 months) were divided in four homogeneous groups
according to age and body weight. The'four groups were allotted randomly two sources of protein
and feeding frequency viz., calves were fed concentrate with mustard cake (M.e.) and roughage
once daily rr;) with M.e. and roughage twice daily (T2) with cotton seed cake (esC) and roughage
once daily (TJ, with ese and roughage twice daily (T.). The average OM!, OCP and TON intake of
buffalo calves did not differ significantly due to source of protein and frequency of feeding. Similar
results were obtained for feed conversion efficiency. Body weight, wi. gain were significantly (Pficantly. Average daily voluntary water intake was ,not significantly influenced by feeding two sources of protein. However, average daily water intake was significantly (P
