Twenty-eight Osmanabadi kids of 6-7 months age, similar size, body weight (12.58 kg) and either sex was reared on different floorings i.e. T0 –concrete, T1 – soil, T2 – murrum and T3 –sand flooring. The overall means of body weight (kg) of Osmanabadi kids was significantly higher in T2, T1 and T3 than T0. While, the daily growth rate (kg) and body weight gain (kg) of Osmanabadi kids was significantly higher in T1 and T2 than T0 and T3. The overall means of body length for T0, T1, T2 and T3 were 46.63±1.08, 45.42±1.25, 46.95±1.10 and 48.52±1.42 cm, height at wither for T0, T1, T2 and T3 were 57.19±1.06, 54.10±2.11, 58.18±0.94 and 55.16±1.59 cm, chest girth for T0, T1, T2 and T3 were 54.71±1.46, 55.94±1.79, 55.34±2.05 and 55.33±2.05 cm, abdominal girth for T0, T1, T2 and T3 were 58.08±1.83, 58.17±1.47, 60.37±2.03 and 56.83±1.73 cm, respectively. Thus, from above findings, it can be concluded that murum type of flooring material is comparatively superior with other different types of flooring.
