|Abstract||The study conducted to find out the utilization of methi straw by sheep and goats, at the Livestock Farm, Rajasthan College of Agriculture, Udaipur. The main objectives of the study were to measure the voluntary intake, digestibility of nutrients, rate of passage of feed residues through the digestive tract and effect of two times v/s three times feeding on intake in sheep and goats. Five apparently healthy animals each of sheep (Sonadi and Corriedale) and goat (Sirohi) were selected for the experiment. Methi straw was the sole feed offered to all animals throughout the experimental period along with mineral lick. Fresh clean and wholesome water was offered twice a day to all the animals. The chemical composition of methi straw was 88.50 % DM, 88.40 % OM, 11.50 % CP, 37.00 % CF, 1.20 % EE, 38.70 % NFE and 11.60 % ash on dry matter basis. The digestibility coefficients of methi straw for sheep was 58.21, 63.04, 65.78, 62.55, 78.20 and 55.09 % and for goats was 61.84, 60.00, 72.33, 68.04, 75.29 and 57.09 %, respectively for DM, OM, CP, CF, EE and NFE. The digestibility coefficient of CF and CP was significantly (P < 0.05) higher in goats as compared to sheep. Digestibility coefficients for other nutrients namely OM, EE and NFE were statistically non-significant between sheep and goats. The DM intake on per cent body weight basis and metabolic body size basis was 3.06 and 62.93 for sheep and 3.34 and 69.12 for goats on two times feeding basis. It was revealed that goats consume significantly (P < 0.01) higher DM as compared to sheep. The DM intake (% B.W.) and DM intake (g/kg W0.75) was 3.52 and 72.33 for sheep and 3.71 and 77.58 for goats during the second phase of three times feeding. On increasing the frequency of feeding, it was revealed that sheep and goats consume significantly (P < 0.01) higher dry matter in case of three times feeding as compared with two times feeding. The DCP intake and TDN intake (g/day/animal) were 47.68 and 336.41, respectively for sheep and 57.58 and 396.56, respectively for goats during three times feeding. * PG Scholar, Department of Animal Production, RCA, Udaipur.|

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.
