  A study to assess the effect of different methods of thawing viz., Room Temperature (RT), Chiller Temperature (CT) and Microwave (MW) and Water Bath (WB) on physico-chemical characteristics of frozen buffalo meat was carried out. Results indicated that microwave thawing was the quickest method (10 min) followed by water bath thawing while room temperature thawing and chiller temperature hawing took longer duration. A highly significant difference (p<0.01) in WB Shear force value was observed in samples thawed at RT and WB, RT and MW and CT and MW treatments. A highly significant (p<0.01) difference in munsell chroma and drip loss of meat samples between different treatments. The highest drip loss was recorded in WB thawing followed by RT thawing. MW thawing showed a highly significant (p<0.01) difference recording the lowest cooking loss compared to that of RT, CT and WB thawing methods. It was found that microwave thawing was the quickest compared to other methods and had lower cooking loss.

  About 1 week old Mecheri lambs having average weight of 2.2 kg were selected and divided into three groups such as control, fed exclusively with ewe’s milk, treatment 2, fed with 50% of soya milk and 50% of ewe’s milk and treatment 3, fed with 75% soya milk and 25% ewe’s milk. All the lambs were fed with 10% of their body weight. The control group had a mean body weight (kg) of 3.43, 6.34 and 8.57 at 30, 60 and 90 days of age, respectively. The T2 group had a body weight (kg) of 3.69, 6.34 and 9.99 at 30, 60 and 90 days of age, respectively. The T3 group had a body weight (kg) of 3.74, 6.89 and 10.33 at 30, 60 and 90 days of age, respectively. The growth performance of the treatment groups T2 and T3 were significantly higher than the control group (p<0.01). The higher weight gain was observed in the T3 as compared to T2, this might be due to higher protein, total solids content of the respective soya milk and ewe’s milk blends fed. This investigation reveals that the feeding of soya milk and ewe’s milk blend will be beneficial for feeding orphan lambs.
