  Survey method was used to find the effect of shrimp culture on livestock production. The study area is located in the south-western part of Bangladesh in the tidal flood plain near the large mangrove forest, the sundarbans. The average livestock (cattle, goat, sheep, buffalo) number (per farmer), milk production (kg/day/cow), lactation period (day), birth wt. (kg) are significantly higher before shrimp culture compared to after shrimp culture but mortality percentage are significantly higher after shrimp culture compared to before shrimp culture. Livestock population and its overall conditions were better before shrimp culture compared with after shrimp culture. The study has revealed that the production of livestock have been affected following the shrimp farming practices in the study areas. Shrimp farming interacts with the environment and its expansion destroyed whole ground in coastal region.

  The present study shows that the overall prevalence of gastro-intestinal nematodes in sheep was 58.18% in Mymensingh. Sheep were infested with Strongyloides spp. (7.7%), Haemonchus spp. (18.18%), Trichuris spp. (5.45%), Oesophagostomum spp. (9.09%) and mixed infection (14.18%). Twenty sheep were selected from fifty five sheep for this study which was heavily infected with gastro-intestinal nematodes marked by McMaster method. Sheep were treated with Vermic® (ivermectin) @ 0.23 mg kg-1 body weight. A significant (p<0.01) reduction of EPG count was found on 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th day of Vermic® (90.51, 89.85, 87.91 and 86.38%) treated sheep. The EPG count of untreated control group were significantly (p<0.01) increased about 7.88, 11.45, 20.15 and 30.26% on 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th day, respectively. After treatment with Vermic®, Total Erythrocyte Count (TEC), Hemoglobin (Hb) content and Packed Cell Volume (PCV) were increased significantly (p<0.01 and p<0.05) in sheep. On the other hand Total Leukocyte Count (TLC) was decreased significantly (p<0.01 and p<0.05) in all treated sheep. The body weight was increased significantly (p<0.01 and p<0.05) in Vermic® treated group. On the other hand body weight was decreased in untreated control group. Vermic® may be used as a broad spectrum anthelmintic against gastro-intestinal nematodiasis in sheep.
