Abstract :

 A study was conducted to assess the growth performance of Mandya lambs reared under intensive (T1) and semi intensive system (T2) of management. Twenty Mandya lambs of three months age were grouped in to two groups of ten each. T1 group was fed with concentrate mixture (300g) and maize fodder (ad lib), whereas animals in T2 group were allowed for grazing 8 hour and fed concentrate mixture (150g) for maintenance. During study period faecal samples collected at every four weeks interval to assess parasitic load. The average parasitic load estimated (EPG) was 14.90 ± 6.034 (T1) and 36.63 ± 13.45 (T2). There was significant (P<0.05) difference in parasitic load. In the study it was concluded that Mandya sheep performed better under intensive management system, considering parasitic load was minimum in lambs reared under intensive farming system.
