An On Farm Trial was conducted to evaluate the effect of shatavari (Asparagus recemosus) on milk production in lactating buffaloes which were parturated 1 to 4 months before commencement of trial. Total 20 lactating buffaloes were selected and fed 50 gm powder of shatavari roots in concentrates once in a day for a period of 180 days. The milk production was increased 0.60+ 0.27 kg (9.67%) daily respectively as compared to their previous production. Increase in the income by feeding shatavari came to Rs. 12.00/day/animal and B:C ratio was found 1:2.28. From the above results it was concluded that shatavari is effective for increase in milk production and beneficial for economic milk production.
