|Abstract||It is well-accepted fact that feeding animals is incomplete without including green fodder in their diet. Therefore, this experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of feeding hydroponically sprouted maize and barley fodder for Konkan Kanyal goats. The experiment was conducted at the Instructional livestock farm, College of Agriculture, Dapoli-415712, District Ratnagiri (M.S)-India. Eighteen growing male kids of 3-7 months old with average live body weight of 11.01Â±0.26 kg were divided into six treatments (3 animals each) randomly to receive one of the treatment diets viz. T0-Finger millet straw(FMS)100%; T1- FMS + hydroponic maize fodder (HMF) 80%:20%; T2-FMS + hydroponic barley fodder(HBF) 80%:20%; T3-FMS + HMF 60%:40%; T4-FMS + HBF 60%:40%; T5-FMS + HMF + HBF 60%:20%:20% for 97 days. After adaptation to the experimental diet, digestibility trial was conducted individually to evaluate digestibility of experimental feed and estimated body weight gain, feed conversion efficiency and economics of the experimental fodder fed to growing kids. Results denoted a significant (P < 0.05) improvement in DM intake, feed conversion efficiency, average body weight gain, economics of feeding and cost benefit ratio as 415.36Â±11.51g/d, 12.15Â±0.80 %, 61.93Â±4.35 g/d, 1306.10 Rs. and 2.6 was recorded for T3. While, the lowest (P > 0.05) values as 317.54Â±16.67 g/d, -0.47Â±0.89 %, -1.17Â±3.99 g/d, -697.71 Rs. and -0.02 was recorded for T0. It can be concluded that feeding of hydroponically sprouted maize and barley fodder to growing kids increased the digestibility of nutrients, body weight gain and feed conversion efficiency leading to increase in net profit.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
