Understanding the unique traits of indigenous pigs which make them resilient to climate change and development of data base

 

   

 

 

Monitoring of GHG emissions from pasturelands and different feeding systems of animals

The performance of various breeds of pig in different housing models was tested under Meghalaya conditions. The study revealed that the growth rate in deep litter housing was better and there was lower incidence of diseases and occurrence of other abnormal behavior.

During 2015-2016, three types of pastures viz. natural pasture, improved pasture and sown pasture were established/maintained for execution of grazing or feeding system treatments. Maximum herbage yield was attained under natural pasture (5.65 t DM/ha), however, CP content of herbage mass was higher in sown pasture (8.67 %).

Adaptive management of small ruminants under grazing conditions to climate change

 

A study is in progress to identify the physiological indicators of stress in grazing small ruminants and to develop consolidated adaptation strategies under grazing conditions. Thirty six Nellore ewes (22.8 ± 2.86 kg) were randomly divided into two comparable groups with eighteen animals in each group and exposed to heat stress during April to June by allowing for grazing for 6 hrs (0800-1200hrs and 1600-1800hrs).
