  The external and internal qualities of 80 fresh eggs from each Barred Plymouth Rock (BPR), White Leg horn (WL), Rhode Island Red (RIR) and White Rock (WR) layers were ascertained in one, seven, fourteen and twenty-one days holding periods. Egg weight was highest in WLH (58.38 g), intermediate in BPR (56.3g) and RIR (55.95g) and lowest in WR (59.60g). Egg length was highest in WLH (5.91 cm), intermediate in BPR (5.86 cm) and RIR (5.71 cm) and lowest in WR (5.62 cm). Egg width was highest in WLH (4.21 cm), intermediate in BPR and WR (4.16 cm) and lowest in RIR (4.13 cm). Shape index was highest in WR (74.10), intermediate in RIR (72.32) and WLH (71.34) and lowest in BPR (71.14). Breaking strength was highest in WLH egg (3.38 kg/cm), intermediate in RIR (3.31 kg/cm) and BPR (2.61 kg/cm) and lowest in WR (2.19 kg/cm) egg. Albumen height of WR, WLH, BPR and RIR egg was 4.66, 4.33, 4.19 and 3.60 mm respectively. Haugh unit was highest in WR (58.68), intermediate in WLH (45.81) and BPR (54.20) and lowest in RIR (45.81). Shell thickness was highest in WLH and RIR (0.35 mm), intermediate in WR (0.32 mm) and lowest in BPR (0.31 mm). There were significant difference among the breeds and holding period for all the egg quality traits except egg width. Breed and holding period interactions were significant for egg length, shape index, albumen height and Haugh unit but not for other traits. The egg weight, egg length, egg width, albumen height and Haugh unit of all breeds were higher in fresh egg that means one days egg but breaking strength and shell thickness were higher in seven days holding period eggs than the other period eggs. The egg weight, egg length, egg width, breaking strength performance is superior in White Leghorn over other breeds. Shape index and albumen height is better in White Rock than other 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.

  Supplemental effect of concentrate was studied on growth and reproductive performance in female goats and sheep under grazing condition. Six females each of goats and sheep aged about ten months and weighing on average, 12.6 and 11.7 kg respectively was used. The supplied concentrate supplement contained wheat bran, rice polish and soybean meal (50:40:10, 350 g/d). Animals of each species were blocked according to live weight and the blocked groups were assigned at random to two feeding regimes (with or without concentrate supplementation) in a 2×2 factorial experiment. Significantly higher (P<0.01) dry matter intake was observed in supplemented group than those of control group (grazing without concentrate) irrespective of animal species. Between sheep and goats significant (P<0.05 to P<0.01) difference was observed in DM intake and live weight gain. Kids birth weight was higher (0.71 vs. 0.55 kg) and gestation length was lower (142 vs. 145 d) in goats given the concentrate supplement than those of control goats. These results suggested that the effect of supplementing concentrate diet be benefited for the growth and reproductive performance of goats and sheep under grazing condition.

  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 present research work was undertaken to identify the quality milk production trend of Bangladesh Milk Production Co-operative Union Ltd. (Milk Vita) throughout the year. To achieve the objectives relevant data were collected during the period from January 1995 to December 1999 at different Milk Shed Area (MSA) of Milk Vita. Milk production trend of Baghabarighat and Takerhat MSA was differed significantly (p<0.01) among different months of each year during the experimental period and the average values of milk production of different years (1995-1999) were also differed significantly at 5 and 1% respectively. In Sree-Nagor, Manikgonj, Rangpur and Tangail MSA, milk production of each year differs significantly (p<0.01) and the average milk production values of different years did not differed significantly among different months of each year. From the mean values of five years record it was observed that milk production (TL/day) of Baghabarighat, Takerhat, Sree-Nagor, Manikgonj, Rangpur and Tangail MSA was 53.29, 4.19, 2.19, 2.47, 3.30 and 1.15 respectively. It was also revealed that the highest milk production was in February (10.01%) and lowest in September (6.46%) and milk production gradually increased from September to February which was indicated a specific milk trend throughout the year of Milk Vita. Fat and Solids-not-fat (SNF) production was little highest in December to April in Banghabarighat but same trend was not seen in all MSAs. From this study, it may be concluded that year round milk production of Milk Vita as well as Bangladesh were 9.97, 10.01, 9.20, 8.59, 8.17, 8.37, 7.27, 6.50, 6.46, 6.86, 8.73 and 9.88% respectively.
