Twenty Holstein dairy cows in second to fifth lactations were used to examine the effect of guar germ at different levels on yield and quality of milk. Animals were divided randomly into four groups (A, B, C and D) of almost similar weight and milk production. The animals of group A, B, C and D were fed on 0, 50, 75 and 100% of guar germ. All diets were iso-caloric and iso-nitrogenous. The duration of experiment was 8 weeks and 2 weeks for adaptation period. The results indicated that there were significant differences (P0.05) were found between treatments in the percentage of milk fat. The study of sensory evaluation of milk showed no significant differences (P
