  • To assess the effect of probiotic (having Lactobacillus acidophilus) supplementation on pre-ruminant (0-3 months age) buffalo calves, total eight buffalo calves were divided into two groups of four calves in each with completely randomized design (CRD) according to their body weight. One group was the control while the other group was supplemented with bacteria Lactobacillus-acidophilus-containing probiotics 100 mg/calf/day in milk for a period of two months. Weekly growth rate of calves represents that the effect of Lactobacillus acidophilus was more effective (P LT 0.01) in the first month of supplementation but the effect was not sustained in the second month. Never the less, probiotic supplementation led to an overall improvement (P LT 0.05) in the growth rate of buffalo calves. The results indicate that supplementation of Lactobacillus acidophilus in the diet of buffalo calves had a positive effect in the early stage of life, and the effect subsides with advancement of time due to rumen development.
