Vol 8(1), 171-176

A trial was conducted to assess the postweaning growth performance of Tellicherry kids under feeding varying levels of dried distillers grains in an organized goat farm, Injambakkam, Chennai. Thirty six numbers of Tellicherry male kids were randomly divided into four groups. The kids fed with concentrate and roughage in a ratio of 60:40 based on 4 per cent body weight. The concentrate mixture contained varying levels of dried distillers grains T1 (0 per cent) as a control diet, T2 (5 per cent DDG), T3 (10 per cent DDG) and T4 (15 per cent DDG). Pigeon pea (Cajanus cajan) straw was used as a sole source of roughage. The results showed that there was significant increase in postweaning body weight in T4 followed by T3, T2 and T1. The average daily dry matter intake and body measurements were not significant different among treatment groups but higher in dried distillers grains supplemented groups than control. The average daily gain was significant higher in T4, T3 and T2. The feed conversion ratio was lower in dried distiller’s grains supplemented group than control. However, inclusion of dried distiller’s grains up to 15 per cent in concentrate diet as an alternative feed for goats and it can replace a portion of soybean meal and maize up to 15 per cent of the concentrate diet in growing meat goats.
