The study was conducted to investigate the impacts of green tea by-product supplemented diets on body weight and hematological parameters in goats at Sylhet region of Bangladesh. The goats were assigned to 4 dietary treatments in a completely randomized design. Each treatment had 3 replications with 3 goats per replication. The treatment was replicated two times. Each group numbered as T1, T2, T3 and T0. Goats of all groups were supplied with standard goat feed and fresh drinking water ad libitum. Group T0 was considered as the control and fed with normal goats feed. Goats of group T1, T2 and T3 were maintained as treated groups and group T1 was fed with 0.5% dry Tea by-product with normal goats feed, group T2 was treated with 1% dry tea by-product and group T3 was treated with 2% dry tea by-product respectively. The body weight of the goats was taken at the day 0 of the experiment and again at day 30, day 60 and day 90 to compare with the initial body weight. Blood samples were collected at day 30, day 60 and day 90 of treatment for hematological and biochemical experiments. Body weight was significantly (P<0.05) increased in treated group compared to control group. Effects of green tea by-product on RBC, WBC, Hb and albumin concentration were not significant in treated groups (T1, T2, and T3) compared to control. Cholesterol and BUN concentration were decreased significantly (P<0.05) in treated groups (T1, T2 and T3) compared to control. Based on our study results, it may be concluded that green tea by-product might have significant effect on body weight gain and physiological characteristics.
