M. J. Uddin, M. Shahjalal, F. Kabir, M. H. Khan and S. A. Chowdhury    

Abstract: The aim of this experiment was to investigate the beneficiary effect of feeding urea-molasses treated straw on dairy buffaloes. Nine animals are divided into two groups bearing 5 animals in group A and 4 animals in group B (control). The daily milk yield of UMS fed group A (2.69 kg) was significantly (P<0.001) higher than that of the control (1.63 kg) one. Lactation length was also higher in UMS group although insignificant. Further more, calf live weight gain of group A was non significantly better than B. Total feed cost were higher in group A for addition of supplement than B. Whereas, return from milk and calf live weight gain in supplemented group A was significantly better than control group B. UMS may be the best, cheapest as well as economic supplemented diet for dairy buffaloes during green roughage scarcity period.
