  A total of 3000 eggs; 750 eggs from each breed namely Barred Plymouth Rock (BPR),White Leghorn (WLH), Rhode Island Red (RIR) and White Rock (WR) were collected in 3 batches following AI from individually caged hens and were hatched to compare hatching parameters among breeds. The different hatchability traits of hen of different breeds; BPR, WLH, RIR and WR were compared. Hatching egg weight had no significant (P>0.05) difference among 4 genotypes. Fertility was highest in WLH, intermediate in WR and lowest and similar in BPR and RIR (P<0.01) with differences of fertility among 3 batches (P<0.01). Breed had little effect on hatchability of fertile eggs (P>0.05), but it differed among batches (P<0.01). Hatchability on total eggs was highest in WLH, intermediate in BPR and WR and lowest in RIR (P<0.05) and having also differences among batches (P<0.01). No significant (P>0.05) difference in dead in germs (DG) and dead in shell (DS) were found attributable to genotype, but DG and DS differed significantly(P<0.01) among 3 batches. Breed and batch had little effect on normal chicks and abnormal chicks hatched (P>0.05). Chick weight at hatching was highest (P<0.05) and similar in BPR (38.95 g) and WLH (38.96 g), intermediate in RIR (38.50 g) and lowest in WR (38.13 g). Batch had little effect on chick weight. Percent chick weight was found highest (P<0.01) in BPR (67.21%), intermediate in RIR (65.96%) and lowest and similar in WLH (65.17%) and WR (65.46%) without significant (P>0.05) difference in batches. There were some correlations among different hatchability traits depending on genotype within breed. The correlations were more profound among WLH. It was clear that chick weight as percent of egg weight was not just a function of egg weight, but also genotype played an important role favouring the heavier breeds.

  A trail was conducted to investigate the effect and economic evaluation of feeding urea-molasses and urea-molasses concentrate with green grass on milk yield. Sixteen animals were grouped in to 3 having 5 animals in each of group A and C and 6 animals in group B. Group A was control (farmer practice), B was fed urea-molasses with green grass and C was fed urea-molasses concentrate with green grasses. The average milk yield of group A, B and C were 0.82, 2.67 and 1.87 kg/d and 4% fat corrected milk yield (FCM) of group A, B and C were 2.54, 6.99 and 4.78 kg/d respectively. The both average milk yield and FCM yield of group A was significantly (P<0.001) lower than treated groups B and C. Supplemented group B was significantly higher than supplemented group C. Total feed cost in group B (TK.1140) was lower than that of group C (TK.1305). In contrasts , net return from B (TK.5950) was higher than that of group C (TK.3658). In addition, another metabolic trail was carried out to find out the reason of better performance of urea-molasses supplemented group than urea-molasses concentrate group. Four cannulated animals were fed four types of dietary group, A, B, C and D respectively and was observed the ruminal parameters (NH3, pH) NH3-N was significantly higher (P<0.05) in dietary groups C and D than in dietary groups A and B. Addition of urea increased rumen NH3 level and maintain rumen pH in normal range. This favorable environment of rumen may recovered the deficit nutrients (energy, protein) of normal local grasses and increased milk production.

  This experiment was conducted to estimate the yield and nutritive value of common roadside grasses available in Bangladesh. A land was developed as an experimental plot and made for growing roadside grasses and was partitioned into four quarters each of 200 sq.m. Pasture was established as a grazing land. The average herbage yield (DM and OM) recorded in the month of November was significantly (P<0.05) higher than that of August, September or February. The fresh yield (P<0.05) and CP yield of Phaseolus mungo were significantly higher than that of other grass species. The OM content of Imperata cylindrica was significantly (P<0.05) than other grasses. The DM content of Cynodon dactylon and Imperata cylindrica, NDF content of Cynodon dactylon and CP content of Phaseolus mungo were significantly (P<0.01) higher than other grass species.

  The aim of this experiment was to investigate the beneficiary effect of feeding urea-molasses treated straw on dairy buffaloes. Nine animals are divided into two groups bearing 5 animals in group A and 4 animals in group B (control). The daily milk yield of UMS fed group A (2.69 kg) was significantly (P<0.001) higher than that of the control (1.63 kg) one. Lactation length was also higher in UMS group although insignificant. Further more, calf live weight gain of group A was non significantly better than B. Total feed cost were higher in group A for addition of supplement than B. Whereas, return from milk and calf live weight gain in supplemented group A was significantly better than control group B. UMS may be the best, cheapest as well as economic supplemented diet for dairy buffaloes during green roughage scarcity period.

  The aim of this experiment was to compare hatchability traits of four different breeds. A total of 3087 eggs were collected in 3 batches following artificial insemination from individually caged hen. For different breeds of cock; barred plymouth rock, white leghorn, rhode island red and white rock were compared. Fertility was highest in WLH (95.08%), intermediate in WR (92.57%) and lowest and similar in BPR (88.97%) and RIR (88.16%). Breed had little effect on fertile eggs (P>0.05). However, hatchability on total eggs was highest (P<0.05) and similar in WLH (85.99%) and WR (85.46%), lowest in BPR (81.36%) and RIR (80.21%). Breed had no significant (P>0.05) effect on dead in germ and dead in shell. Among 4 genotypes RIR (98.56%) and WLH (97.90%) were the highest (P<0.05) and similar normal chicks hatched, intermediate in BPR (97.73%) and lowest in WR (96.27%). The percentage of abnormal chicks was observed highest in WR (3.73%), intermediate in BPR (2.27%) and lowest in RIR (1.44) and WLH (1.43). Breed had little effect on chick weight at hatching. Percent chick weight was found highest in BPR (67.24%), intermediate in RIR (65.96%) and lowest and similar in WR (65.47%) and WLH (65.17%). Batch had no significant effect among different hatchability traits.

  A total of 15 young rabbits (kits) of 35 days old were randomly allocated to same concentrate mixture (T2) in a completely randomized design. All the rabbits were offered ad-libitum green grass with same concentrate mixture. All the animals were kept in the same management. The feed intake, live weight changes and feed conversion efficiency was recorded. DM intake in three different groups (A, B, C) were 350.53?46.57, 403.62 ± 41.89 and 389.30 ± 53.71 (g/wk) which were not significant. The average daily gains in group A, B and C were 11.25 ± 8.71, 15.20 ± 8.33 and 14.43 ± 9.84 respectively and the differences among groups were not significant. The differences in growth velocity among different groups were not significant. Feed conversion efficiency were 4.45, 3.79 and 3.85 for group A, B and C respectively and the values were found non-significantly different. The result indicated that feeding of mother in terms of energy did not have any significant effect on DM intake, live weight changes, growth velocity and feed conversion efficiency upon their kits.

  The study was designed to assess the comparative profitability of selected winter vegetables like potato, cauliflower and tomato. To achieve this objective, total of 75 farmers, 25 producing potato, 25 producing cauliflower and 25 producing tomato were selected. For this purpose, Cobb-douglas production function model was used. Per hectare total cost of production of potato, cauliflower and tomato were 51396.79, 64406.06 and 61663.87 TK., respectively and the corresponding gross incomes were 99401.44, 119165.12 and 93442.24 TK., respectively. The estimated net return of producing potato, cauliflower and tomato were 48004.65, 54759.06 and 31778.37 TK., respectively. For producing the three alternate winter vegetables net return was the highest for cauliflower followed by potato and tomato. It was also found that there was a large variation of yield in producing these winter vegetables among different categories of farms. In the case producing potato and cauliflower, per hectare yield was the highest for small farms followed by medium and large farms. On the other hand in the case of tomato per hectare yield was the highest (48164.50 kg) for large farms followed by medium (47444.10 kg) and small farms (46143.00 kg). It is concluded that production of cauliflower is more profitable than that of others.

  The experiment was conducted to find out the effect of birth weight and milk yield on kid mortality in Black Bengal goats from birth to 90 days of age. The results indicated that birth weight of kids and milk yield of does had strong relationship with mortality during the pre-weaning period. Birth weight and milk yield had significant (P<0.05) effect on survivability for all the stages of growth up to 90 and 60 days of age, respectively. The kid survivability were highest and lowest having milk yield of does found to be 400-600 and 80-200 g day‾1, respectively. On the contrary it was also evident that survivability of kids increased from 39.8 to 90.0% with the increase of birth weight from 0.5-0.8 to 2.0-3.0 kg groups, respectively. The same trend of increased survival rate was observed when milk of does increased from 80-200 to 400-600 g day‾1 with corresponding in survival rate from 47.5 to 70.5%. It was concluded that birth weight of kids and milk yield of dam had a pronounced positive effect on kid mortality.

  An experiment was conducted to study the effect of concentrate supplementation on growth and reproductive performance of female sheep and goats under grazing condition. Six females each of sheep and goats aged about 6 months and weighing on average 9.80 and 9.77 kg respectively were studied for 224 days. Goats and sheep were allocated to two feeding regimes in a 2x2 factorial experiment. Feeding of animals (sheep and goats) with concentrate supplement significantly (P<0.01) increased DM (477.7 vs. 253.0 g/d) intake compared with those of the control group. The higher intake of DM resulted in significantly (P<0.01) higher live weight gain in animals of supplemented group than those of control group. However, between sheep and goats significant difference was observed in live weight gain (P<0.01) and DM intake (P<0.05). The results showed that certain reproductive parameters such as age at puberty, gestation weight and kid birth weight may be improved by supplementary feeding of concentrate. Therefore, feeding of grazing goats and sheep with concentrate supplement may be suggested to optimize growth performance.

  The experiment was conducted to determine the effect of protein supplementation on growth performance in female goats and sheep. Ten does and six ewes aged about 15 months and weighing on average, 13.9 and 14.4 kg respectively were studied in this experiment. Animals were allocated to two feeding regimes [low protein (LP), 168g and high protein (HP), 208g per kg DM] in a randomized block design according to live weight. HP diet did not significantly (p>0.05) increase live weight gain (33.0 vs. 25.2 g/d) in goats. In contrast, sheep received the HP diet significantly (p<0.05, p<0.01) improved DM intake (509.0 vs. 425.9 g/d) and live weight gain (36.6 vs. 10.7 g/d) compared to those given the LP diet. These results indicate that supplementary feeding of high protein diet (208g CP per kg DM) significantly increased growth performance of sheep under grazing condition.
