Abstract: The present investigation was conducted at LRC, ICAR-NDRI, Karnal to find out the effect of polyherbal mixture supplementation on colostrum production and SCC of the Sahiwal cows during the transition period. For that 32 multiparous Sahiwal cows were selected and divided into four groups, eight cows in each group. Control (T0) group of cows were offered the ration as per the standard feeding schedule (NRC, 2001). The treatments group (T1, T2 and T3) cows were offered the same ration and with additionally in T1 group 200 g poly-herbal (50 g each Shatavari, Methi and Jeera; 25 g each Dalchini and Tulsi; added with 250 g jaggery) mixture was offered for 30 days before and 60 days after calving and in T2 group 150 g poly-herbal (25 g each Ajwain, Fennel, Ginger, Black cardamom and Black seeds, 20 g Turmeric and 5 g Clove; boiled with 25 g Black salt and jaggery) mixture was offered from parturition to 7 days postpartum and in T3 group the poly-herbal mixture combination was given as a treatment. The colostrum yield and SCC of Sahiwal cows were recorded on 1st, 3rd and 5th day after calving. The analysis of variance of data revealed that, the cows of T1, T2 and T3 groups had significantly (P≤0.05) higher colostrum yield on 5th day. The SCC of colostrum was lower (P≤0.05) at 5th day in T3 followed by T1, T2 and T0 groups of Sahiwal cows. The combination of poly-herbal supplementation had better effect on the colostrum production and quality of the Sahiwal cows during the transition period.
