Present study was undertaken to evaluate the effect of distilled cow urine on the nutrient utilization by the white leghorn layers. For the purpose 100 birds were divided in to two groups of 50 each. One group was kept as control and second ‘treatment’ group was given cow urine @ 1 ml per bird. Feed intake and feed conversion ratio were recorded at every 15 day intervals and proximate analysis of excreta was done to record the digestibility. The results showed that there was increase in feed intake, decreased feed conversion ratio and feed efficiency ratio. Digestibility of dry matter, crude protein, ether extract, crude fiber, organic matter increased significantly in the cow urine treated group.


Key words

Cow urine, feed efficiency, feed conversion ratio, digestibility, white leghorn layers.
