  The objective was to evaluate the effects of genotype×environment interaction on growth traits of Brahman crossbred cattle. The animals were reared in two environments viz., Central Cattle Breeding Station (on-station) and farmer’s herd (on-farm) where management system was respectively intensive and semi-intensive in nature. Birth weight was very similar across environments. Average body weight at different ages was greater in on-station herd than in on-farm herd (p<0.01). Body weight was 23.0, 25.4, 41.5 and 27.5 kg greater at 6, 9, 12 and 18 month in on-station herd than in the on-farm herd, respectively. Significant interaction between sire×environment in most of the growth traits (p<0.001) was observed. Heritability estimates for growth traits were greater in on-station herd (ranged from 0.29-0.47) than in on-farm herd (ranged from 0.48-0.50). Genetic correlations of the same growth trait between two environments showed a decreasing tendency with the increase in age of animal (from 0.74±0.05 at 3 months to 0.57±0.05 at 24 months). These results demonstrate that effects of G×E in Brahman crossbred cattle are large between two types of management system indicating that breeding bull selection and use should be carried out within environment basis.

  Seventy-five Red Chittagong Cattle and equal number of Local Cattle were kept under the research at Chittagong district and divided into three age groups i.e. Calf, Heifer and Cow to determine the serum glucose and total serum protein. Blood samples were collected from all the experimental animals, serum was separated and stored at –20°C and assayed with a biochemical analyzer (Model: PLD-951/951A/951B) by enzymatic colorimetric test. The results revealed no significant variation of values, e.g. glucose (35.16±2.402 g dL-1 and 35.37±2.403 g dL-1), total protein (8.98±.470 g dL-1 and 8.997±.558 g dL-1) between RC cow and Local cow respectively having slightly lower levels in RC cow. The variations of serum-biochemical values (Glucose, Total Protein) were also non-significant between RC heifer (39.02±2.151 g dL-1, 9.22±.731 g dL-1) and Local heifer (39.15±2.395 g dL-1, 9.37±0.645 g dL-1) though it was higher in Local. But the glucose level was significantly (P<0.05) higher in RC calf (44.50±2.466 g dL-1) than Local calf (38.36±2.247 g dL-1). Another value like, total Protein (8.55±.686 g dL-1 and 8.55±.492 g dL-1), had no significant variations between RC calf and Local calf. Within same breed, only glucose had significant (p<0.05) variations between RC cow and RC calf. Glucose level was decreased along with advancement of age in RC cattle but in other case did not show this trend of change.

  The effect of ammonia treatment of straw and of barley and lucern-unmolassed sugar beet pulp supplementation on intake, digestibility, nitrogen retention and metabolizable energy of barley straw was studied in sheep. A conventional balance trial was conducted in two periods with 12 sheep, six sheep receiving the same straw in each period, with two sheep on each diet. Chemical analysis of the straw showed a remarkable increase in crude protein content (2.90-8.75% DM) intake (744-939 g/day), dry matter digestibility (56.9-65.3%) nitrogen retention (-10.2-1.4 g/100g N intake) and ME (6.60-8.01 MJ/kgDM) after treatment with ammonia. Supplementation with barley and to lesser extent with lucern-sugar beet pulp, suppressed straw intake but increased total intake up to 600 g dry matter per day.

  The productive and reproductive traits of Red Chittagong cows were studied in both farm and rural conditions. Some traits like time of estrus after calving, calving interval, milk yield and lactation period was better in farm condition than the rural conditions. Productive and reproductive performance of Red Chittagong cows were comparable to that of the pabna cattle.
