  Cattle fattening for beef production have become an important business of the small former in Bangladesh. In few areas of Bangladesh a small scale commercial beef fattening program has already been started. Straw is the important crop residue; contribute the major portion of the fibrous part of the diet of the beef cattle. Rice straw is the basal feed for ruminants with low nutritive value and low digestibility. Farmers use rice straw of traditional verities, green grass, sugarcane tops, wheat and rice bran, molasses, pulses bran and locally available resources such as pumpkin, carrot, bananas, vegetables by products, rice gruel, boiled rice bran, oil cakes etc., for beef fattening. The chemical treatment of straw is the most effective and economic method to improving the quality. Straw is mainly treated with urea and molasses and in some cases chemical treatment also done by the former. Urea molasses straw treatment in beef cattle resulted higher body weight, dressing percentage and also in better carcass quality than untreated straw. The acute shortage of feeds and fodder has long been identified as a serious constraint to optimum livestock production in Bangladesh. The nutritional factor is considered a major constraint to livestock productivity. Traditional grazing field is a scarce except in some pockets in Pabna and Sylph districts. Farmers used three years old cattle for beef fattening and maximum growth rate between 1.1 year to 1.4 years of age. Cattle fattening period is 4.5 months in rural areas of Bangladesh.

  The experiment was conducted to manufacture cheese from skim milk with 30, 40 and 50 g kg-1 soybean oil and whole milk and to monitor the quality of different types of prepared cheese. It was observed that the flavour, taste, colour and appearance, body and texture, overall acceptability and final score were significantly higher in whole milk cheese than that of other types of vegetable oil based (30, 40 and 50 g kg-1) skim milk cheese. Chemical analysis showed that there were significant differences (P<0.01) incase of protein and fat contents of different types of cheeses. On the other hand there were no significant differences in moisture, total solids, ash and acidity content of different types of cheese. Although some chemical parameters showed that the quality of soybean oil based (30, 40 and 50 g kg-1) skim milk cheeses were better than the whole milk cheese but expert judges gave their opinion in favour of whole milk cheese, on the basis of organoleptic evaluation. It may be concluded that cheese could be manufactured successfully from skim milk with 30, 40 and 50 g kg-1 soyabean oil and it will open a new door in business sector and experiment also could solve the protein deficiency of Bangladesh. According to panelists score 50 g vegetable oil based skim milk cheese was better than other types of skim milk cheese.

  A large number of farmers involved in bull fattening just before 3 or 4 months of Eid-Ul-Azha (Muslim festival), when they sell the animals with profitable prices. Cattle fattening for beef production have become an important business of the small farmers in Bangladesh. In few areas of Bangladesh a small scale commercial beef fattening program has already been started. Straw is the important crop residue; contribute the major portion of the fibrous part of the diet of the beef cattle.

The acute shortage of feeds and fodder has long been identified as a serious constraint to optimum livestock production in Bangladesh. The nutritional factor is considered a major constraint to livestock productivity. Traditional grazing field is scarce except in some pokets in Pabna and Sylhet districts. Farmers used three years old cattle for beef fattening and maximum growth rate between 1.1 to 1.4 years of age. Cattle fattening period is 4.5 months in rural areas of Bangladesh.
