An experiment was conducted to study the effect of multi-enzyme supplementation on post-weaning performance of crossbred pigs (3-8 months). In this trial, 75% crossbred (Large White Yorkshire x Desi) pigs were fed with diets supplemented with NSPs degrading enzymes at various levels viz., 0 (T1), 500 (T2) and 1000 (T3) g/ton of feed. The pigs in T3 had significantly (Pme supplemented groups than control. The decrese was 9.03 and 4.62 per cent in T2 and T3 compared to control. The supplementation of NSPs degrading enzyme @ 500 g/ton of feed was found effective in terms of improving weight gain, feed efficiency and feed cost per kg weight gain.
