The present study was conducted to investigate the effect of Asparagus racemosus (Shatavari), supplementation during prepartum period on reproductive performance of Large White Yorkshire sows. A total of 18 sows of 1st to 4th parity were divided into 3 groups comprising 6 sows in each group namely T1, T2 and control. Sows in control group were fed with basal diet while sows in T1 and T2 were subjected to shatavari supplementation @ 100 mg and 200 mg/kg body weight respectively from day 84 of gestation till day of farrowing. The result revealed that dietary supplementation of Shatavari root powder during 84 days of gestation had significantly (P<0.05) increased the number of live born piglets and litter weight at birth compared to the control group. It reduced the incidence of mummified foetuses. Moreover sows supplemented with Shatavari root powder had significantly (P<0.05) reduces the occurrence of dystocia, number of still born piglets and shorten the duration of farrowing. In conclusion the dietary supplementation of Shatavari root powder during prepartum period enhances the reproductive performance of Large White Yorkshire sows.
