  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 study was undertaken to find out the milk fat production trend both in qualitative and quantitative aspect and seasonal effect on it at Sree-Nagor Milk Shed Area (MSA) under Milk Vita in Munshigonj, Bangladesh. The experiment was conducted during the period of 1995 to 1999. Season had the tremendous effect on milk yield (l/d). The milk production showed highest in the month of June, lowest in January, August, September and December; but in other months of the year it seemed almost similar. However, the average fat value of milk at Sree-Nagor MSA followed almost a specific trend throughout the year. Furthermore, the average fat value of Sree-nagor MSA was in-significant (P>0.05) between different months of the experimental period, but that of each year (1995-1999) between different months were highly significant (P<0.01), which means that season has large effect on fat value.
