An investigation was carried out to study the effect of urea molasses mineral block supplementation along with feeding of urea treated rice straw on changes in body weight, feed intake and haemato biochemical parameters of working bullocks. For study nine pairs of working bullocks were divided into three groups, T1, T2 and T3 of three pairs each. The bullocks of T1 group were fed with ad lib. rice straw and 1 kg concentrate mixture, T2 group with ad lib rice straw and 1 kg concentrate mixture along with supplementation of 500 grams of urea molasses mineral block and T3 group with ad lib urea treated rice straw and 1 kg concentrates mixture along with supplementation of 500 grams of urea molasses mineral block daily for experimental period of 90 days. At the end of experimental feeding significant differences (P<0.01) were observed in body weight gain, straw intake and total dry matter intake. Almost all the haemato biochemical parameters showed significant differences (P<0.01) except total erythrocyte count, packed cell volume and serum globulin values in bullocks of T3 group.
