  Objective: The present study was carried out to assess the consequence of supplementation of turmeric, ginger and their combination in the diets of broiler chickens and assessment in terms of feed intake, growth performance and economics of feeding. Materials and Methods: A total of 360 day old Cobb-500 chicks were randomly allocated to six dietary treatments each with three replicates of 20 chicks/replicate (n = 60). Six experimental diets were formulated in such a way that control diet (T0) contained neither turmeric nor ginger. Birds in group T1 and T2 were fed diets containing 0.50 and 0.75% turmeric, whereas birds in group T3 and T4 fed diet contained 0.50 and 0.75% ginger, respectively. Birds in group T5 fed diets containing a combination of 0.50% ginger and 0.50% turmeric with commercial feed. The feeding experiment was carried out for 32 days and different parameters measured included: feed intake, weight gain, feed conversion ratio, dressing percentage and blood parameters. Results: Feed intake of experimental birds in T4 group was higher compared to other groups, i.e., (T0, T1, T2, T3 and T5) without a significant level. A body weight gain (g/bird) was found to be significantly (p<0.05) higher in ginger (T3 group) and turmeric (T2 group) supplemented group as compare to T4, T1, T5 and T0 group. Feed Conversion Ratio (FCR) was significantly (p<0.05) lower in the T3 group as compare to other groups. The dressing percentage, thigh weight, back, neck, wing percentages and blood parameters (Hb, PCV and ESR) were not statistically different among control and other treatment groups. However, the relative weight of breast, wing, gizzard and proventriculus were significantly increased (p<0.05). The cost of production and return of birds was highly economical in treatment T2 as compared to other treatment groups. Conclusion: On the basis of the results of the study, it is concluded that supplementation of turmeric (Curcuma longa) improves the growth performance of broilers when added at the rate of 0.75% level as feed additives in broiler ration.

  Feline Influenza Virus (FInV) and Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) are two important viruses causing cat flu and neoplastic disease all over the world, respectively but to the knowledge, there is no epidemiological survey report available for these two killer diseases in cat in Bangladesh. Therefore, the present study was aimed to determine the prevalence of FInV and FeLV infection through an epidemiologic survey in selected areas of Bangladesh. For this purpose, a total 60 randomly selected cats consisting of 48 pet and 12 stray cats at Tangail district in Bangladesh during May to October, 2009 were used. Nasal swab and blood sample were collected from all cats and tested by commercial rapid RapiGEN® Feline Influenza Virus (FInV) Ag Test kit and RapiGEN® Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) Ag Test kit, respectively following the manufacturer’s (RapiGEN Inc., Korea) instructions. Results revealed the overall prevalence of feline influenza and feline leukemia recorded 5.0 and 1.67%, respectively in cats. There was no significant relationship between the diseases (FInV and FeLV) and different variables. However, the knowledge of the status of FInV and FeLV in cats in the study area will be helpful to undertake preventive measures for FInV and FeLV infection.

  Globally, the prevalence of chronic, noncommunicable diseases is increasing at an alarming rate and diabetes is one of them. If diabetes is not controlled then a lot of complication like coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease, peripheral vascular disease, retinopathy, nephropathy and neuropathy arise in diabetic patients and causes morbidity and/or mortality. Diabetes is increasing at an epidemic form and in near future the largest increases will take place in the regions dominated by developing economies. So, it will be a great social and economical burden to developing countries as well as the developed. But if we be aware about our diet and lifestyle and take proper medication we may prevent and reduce the prevalence of diabetes. Oral medicine plays an important role in management of diabetes. But most of the oral drugs are costly and have a lot of side effects. For this it is also necessary to take medicines with fewer or no side effects. And antidiabetic medicinal plants may play an important role in this case. In this article we have tried to describe how diet and lifestyle with using medicinal plants may help to prevent or maintain diabetes and help to reduce the mortality and morbidity due to diabetes or complication related to it.

  The experiment was conducted to find out the effect of birth weight and milk yield on kid mortality in Black Bengal goats from birth to 90 days of age. The results indicated that birth weight of kids and milk yield of does had strong relationship with mortality during the pre-weaning period. Birth weight and milk yield had significant (P<0.05) effect on survivability for all the stages of growth up to 90 and 60 days of age, respectively. The kid survivability were highest and lowest having milk yield of does found to be 400-600 and 80-200 g day‾1, respectively. On the contrary it was also evident that survivability of kids increased from 39.8 to 90.0% with the increase of birth weight from 0.5-0.8 to 2.0-3.0 kg groups, respectively. The same trend of increased survival rate was observed when milk of does increased from 80-200 to 400-600 g day‾1 with corresponding in survival rate from 47.5 to 70.5%. It was concluded that birth weight of kids and milk yield of dam had a pronounced positive effect on kid mortality.
