  An investigation was carried out on the quality changes in surimi prepared from ice stored Queen fish (Chorinemus lysan) in time interval during 20 days of storage in ice storage condition and the ratio of the fish to ice was maintained 1:1. Mince was prepared in both washed and unwashed condition. To evaluate the gel-forming characteristics, a portion of the mince was washed with water containing 0.1% NaCl. Both washed and unwashed mince were ground with 3% NaCl for 20 min at 4°C. The ground paste was stuffed into polyethylene tube and incubated at various temperatures (40, 50 and 60°C) for 2 h. The quality changes during ice storage of mince prepared from the ice stored fish muscle were evaluated with time interval by determining the gel-forming ability, myofibrillar Ca2+-ATPase activity, protein solubility and pH value of fish muscle. The resulting gels were subjected to the puncture test, teeth cutting test and folding test. Maximum breaking force was obtained from both washed and unwashed mince at the incubation temperature of 50°C. The gel strength of both unwashed and washed meat paste gradually declined with lapse of storage period and washed meat paste showed higher gel forming ability than unwashed meat paste throughout the study period. Myofibrillar Ca2+-ATPase activity, protein solubility and pH of the ice stored muscles decreased from 0.847 to 0.309 μmol pi min 1 mg 1, 87 to 12% and 6.69 to 5.89, respectively, during 20 days of ice storage.

  The study was designed to evaluate the suitable genotype for increasing milk yield with satisfactory reproductive performance in local environmental and managemental conditions. Data from a local private dairy farm on milk yield and different reproductive traits of cows were made available in this study to evaluate the effects of different genotypes on lactation length, milk yield, length of dry period, service per conception, gestation length and post-partum heat period. Statistical analysis of the results indicated that milk yield, length of dry period, service per conception and post-partum heat period were significantly affected (P<0.01) by different genotypes. Lactation length and service per conception were also significantly affected (P<0.01) by parity and interaction of genotype x parity. The highest lactation length was observed for the genotype Jersey x Friesian x Local (JxFxL) and the lowest for Local (L) and Jersey x Local (JxL) in the first and second lactation. The highest milk yield was observed for the genotype JxF and JxFxL and lowest for L and JxL. The highest length of dry period was observed in L and lowest for JxL and JxFxL. Maximum services were required for L and JxFxL and lowest for JxL and Sahiwal x Local (SLxL.) The highest gestation length was observed for genotype SLxL and L, while the lowest for JxF and JxL. The highest post-partum heat period was observed for genotype JxL and JxFxL and lowest for L in pooled lactation. The milk yield of all the crossbred cows showed 16 to 58 per cent higher milk yield than indigenous cows (541.26 kg/lactation). The overall reproductive performance of different genotypes so far included in this study were not very different.

  Hypothetical remarks about the resistance of local native Bangladeshi chickens were compared with an exotic breed like Fayoumi towards Gumboro disease. A reserve experimental result was obtained with increased susceptibility of the locals than the exotics. Poor bursal enlargement along with the absence of many post-mortem lesions and peculiar hepatomegally were notable post-mortem lesions in locals. Maternal antibody attains a zero level as detected at 19 days of age by agar gel precipitation test. Materiality in locals 46% and exotic 38% was encountered in both the breeds following challenge with a virulent field isolate of Gumboro disease virus. Onset of morbidity proceeded in the locals. A spiking death curve was observed in both the breeds. Mortality started since day 2 following challenge and continued till day 5 except in the locals, where it ended on day 3 post challenge. It is assumed that changes in the method of feeding and rearing may act as natural stress affecting the cell-mediated immunity related to genetics and perhaps rendered them more susceptible.

  The duration of storage of frozen bull semen with acceptable quality without pouring any liquid nitrogen into 2-liter container was investigated under field conditions. One frozen straw of each of the 3 donor bulls was evaluated daily for 15 days with regard to sperm motility and normal sperm morphology with respect to acrosome, mid-piece and tail. When frozen semen straws were stored within 2-liter liquid nitrogen (LN) container without pouring any LN into the container up to 15 days of storage, the sperm motility and normal sperm morphology decreased gradually up to 10 days of storage and then the sperm motility and the normal sperm morphology decreased significantly (P<0.001). The motility did not differ significantly between bulls. However, the proportion of normal sperm morphology varied significantly between bulls (P<0.001). In conclusion, frozen bull semen straws can be stored in 2-liter liquid nitrogen (LN) container with acceptable quality for 10 days without any LN under field conditions in Bangladesh.

  Cobb-Douglas production function has been used to measure the effect of various factors on alternate rice-fish production. The chosen factors were of fingerlings cost, cost of cow dung, cost of rice bran, cost of oil cake, cost of lime, cost of urea cost of human labour and cost of netting for fish production and for rice production the factors were human labour, animal labour. Cow dung, urea, TSP, MP, seed and irrigation cost. It was found that except cost of rice bran and lime for fish production all the factors were statistically significant and for the rice production animal labour, TSP and irrigation cost were the insignificant.

  The study was conducted to determine the profitability of alternate rice-fish culture from the viewpoint of small, medium and large farmers. In total 80 alternate rice-fish producing farmers in which 24 small, 44 medium and 12 large farmers were purposively selected from each of the selected strata from three villages under Bhaluka Upazila of Mymensingh district for the study. The study showed that the alternate rice-fish culture was a profitable business. Per hectare costs of alternate rice-fish culture were Tk 46656.25, 47079.26 and 54268.74 for small, medium and large farms, respectively. Per hectare yield of fish, under small, medium and large farms were 1123.85, 1076.92 and 1179.80 kg, respectively and their corresponding yields of rice were 4323, 4491 and 4512 Kg. The average per hectare net returns from alternate rice-fish culture were Tk 27463.50, 28226.33 and 31018.61 for the small, medium and large farms, respectively.

  The experiment was carried out at the Department of Animal Nutrition, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh, to study the effects of different doses of nitrogen (N) fertilizer on yields and chemical composition of Zamboo grass. The fodder was cultivated at 4 levels of N fertilizer viz., 0, 50, 100 and 150 kg urea ha-1 in a completely randomized design having four replications in each treatment. The unit plot size of each replicate was 4×4 m. The fodder was harvested at the pre flowering stage (68 days after sowing) for first cutting and again 40 days after first cutting. The proximate components of the fodder for each plot were determined at the laboratory, Department of Animal Nutrition. The results of the study showed that the total yields (t ha-1) of Zamboo grass on fresh basis were 11.08, 15.63, 22.35 and 26.72 in the first cuttings and 7.94, 12.24, 16.65 and 22.41 in the second cutting using 0, 50, 100 and 150 kg urea ha-1, respectively. The total dry matter (DM) yield of fodder for first cutting at the treatment levels of 0, 50, 100 and 150 kg urea ha-1 were found to be 1.85, 2.75, 3.66 and 4.60 t ha-1 and those in second cutting were 0.67, 2.13, 3.08 and 3.97 t ha-1, respectively. Total yields of fodder green as well as DM basis in both cutting progressively and significantly increased with the increasing levels of N fertilizer doses. Similarly crude protein (CP), crude fiber (CF) and ether extract (EE) yields (t ha-1) were increased with increasing fertilizer doses. The green fodder as well as DM yields and percent of different proximate components of each treatment were higher in the first cutting than that of the second cutting except CF. The DM percent of the fodder was almost similar for different fertilizer treatments in both cutting. Among the various proximate components, CP, CF and EE percent increased by increasing the N fertilizer doses while ash percentage decreased.

  Studies were conducted to evaluate the post-mortem changes in Thai pangas (Pangasius sutchi) during 25 days of ice storage. Rigor mortis progress was measured as parameters of rigor tension. Rigor begins within 1-1.5 h after death in ice and increases gradually with the lapse of storage period. Rigor-index reached maximum of 67.46% in 6 h and did not attain full rigor (100%) and then started relaxation. The organoleptic quality of Thai pangas (Pangasius sutchi) during ice storage was assessed on the basis of the sensory evaluation such as appearance, odour, texture and taste. The initial pH value was around 7.0, which gradually decreased to 5.98 during 14 days of storage period and then increase until the experiment was terminated. The extractability of myofibrillar protein gradually decreased from 88.37 to 52.87% at the end of the 20 days of ice storage. The initial TVB-N value and peroxide value were 1.37 mg/100 g and 1.1 meq kg-1 of oil, respectively which continuously increased with the lapse of storage period. At the end of 20 days of storage TVB-N value and peroxide value were 24.25 mg/100 g and 16.64 meq kg-1 of oil, respectively. There is a large fall of Ca+2-ATPase activity both in presence of 0.1 and 0.5 M KCl during storage period. The overall results indicated that Thai pangas fish was found in acceptable conditions for 20 days of ice storage in an insulated box.

  Two varieties, Local-1 and Local-2 of papaya (Carica papaya L.) were analyzed at four maturity stages (green, mature, ripen and rotten) to obtain a comparative information on their nutritional parameters such as pH, moisture, ash, TTA protein, lipid, carbohydrate, free sugar, reducing sugar, carotene, riboflavin, thiamin, ascorbic acid, calcium, sodium, magnesium, potassium, iron and phosphorus content. The nutrient composition of papaya flesh was found to vary at different maturation stage. The pH, moisture content increases gradually with advancement of maturity in healthy papaya but decreases at rotten stage. The ash, TTA and fiber content was found to be maximum in mature stages and gradually deceases from ripen stage to rotten stage. The results on carbohydrate shown that ripe papaya is a good source of carbohydrate (23.5±0.04 g %) but the content decreases in rotten stage. The concentration of protein, lipid, riboflavin and thiamine are extremely low in ripe papaya. The free sugar, reducing sugar and starch content gradually increases up to ripen stage but decreases at rotten stage. Ripe papaya is a very rich source of vitamin A and vitamin C but their concentrations decrease abruptly at rotten stage. The minerals such as calcium, sodium, magnesium, potassium and phosphorus content of papaya flesh gradually increases with the advancement of maturity whereas the increasing level of iron declines at ripen stages.

  Investigation was carried out to determine specific gravity and chemical quality of milk produced by different primary societies of Bangladesh Milk Producers`Cooperative Union Ltd. (Milk Vita). The chemical qualities of milk produced by primary cooperative societies were quite good i.e., fat, SNF and TS content of milk ranged between 4.327 and 4.853, 7.707 and 7.788, 12.03 and 12.62% respectively. Specific gravity and fat content of milk of these societies were within the normal range but the range of SNF content of milk was slightly lower than the normal range. Out of twenty five primary cooperative societies engaged in the supply of milk of different dairy plants of Milk Vita, Bangalpara primary cooperative society was superior (fat 4.853%, SNF 7.766%, TS 12.62% and specific gravity 1.027) than those of other societies.
