Abstract

An experiment was conducted to compare body composition response between Maduranese and Ongole grade under intensive feedlot management. Four heads of Maduranese and 4 heads of Ongole grade were fed Pennisetum purpureum hay, wheat pollard, soya bean meal, and rice bran for 10 weeks. During the experimental period, body composition (water, protein, and fat) were measured using urea space technique at 1-st, 6-th, and 10-th weeks. Results of the experiment indicated that there was no significant difference (P>0.05) in body composition changes between Maduranese and Ongole grade cattle. The average of body water changes during 1-6, 6-10, and 1-10 weeks were recorded 9,63 kg (5,78%), 7,32 kg (3,85%), and 16,96 kg (9,60%); body protein changes were 2,56 kg (1,53%), 1,94 kg (1,02%), and 4,50 kg (2,55%); whereas body fat changes were 1,12 kg (0,67%), 0,88 kg (0,46%), and 1,99 kg (1,17%). Based on these results, it can be concluded that Maduranese cattle could be used as alternative stockers in intensive feedlot, in addition to Ongole grade cattle. Keywords: Maduranese, Ongole Grade, Cattle Body Composition
