Guar is a drought and high temperature tolerant deep rooted summer annual legume of high social and economic significance. India is the largest producer of guar and contributes 80 percent of total guar production in the world. Guar gum is an important ingredient in producing food emulsifier, food additive, food thickener and other guar gum products. guar meal appears to replace GNC quite successfully in growth of Hariana calves. In growing dairy calves, flavoured guar meal and toasted guar meal gives slightly better rates of intake and gain than raw guar meal. Concentration of total VFAs gradually increases with increasing guar korma level in rations and at post feeding. The animals fed rations containing guar korma shows slightly higher NH3-N concentration compared with the control animals.
