  The study was conducted to identify a suitable milk-recording protocol for small-scale dairy production. Data from Holstein-FriesianxLocal and SahiwalxLocal crossbred cows on 2 selected farms in Chittagong metropolitan area of Bangladesh form 2010 to 2011 was used to compare and evaluate the co-efficients of 3 different mathematical models of lactation curve for daily and test-day milk yield. The estimated model co-efficients and the 210 days predicted lactation milk yields varied significantly between crossbreds. The models were evaluated with 3 fit statistic values (Coefficient of Determination (R2), Root Mean Square Error (RMSE) and Coefficient of Variation (COV)). The highest lactation milk yield was found for FriesianxLocal on Farm 1. The average daily milk yield of FriesianxLocal was higher than Sahiwal crossbreds in both the farms. The Wood model was found to be suitable to transform test-day milk yield into a 210-days predicted milk yield for all crossbreds based on higher R2 and COV and lower RMSE values. The test-day milk yield of 1 and 2 weeks interval was found to be best fitted with the actual 210-days milk yield by using Wood model for both crossbreds.

  Present study examined the marketing system’s of broiler farming in Gazipur district and analyzed marketing costs, margin and profits of retailers. It may be concluded from the study that the producers sold broilers to the retailer at farm level. The retailers sold 80 percent of their live broiler to consumers and 20 percent to the institutional buyers in the market. All of the selected sample producers sold live broiler to retailers at the farm level in the study area, because they are: too far from retailers/consumers, are not able to do what is required and are too small as regards output.
Respondent producers and retailers viewed that fluctuation in supply and demand and also in price are major problems for marketing on broiler. Retailers were not affected by the price fluctuation but broiler producers were severely affected by the downward swing of price fluctuation. Proper measures for solutions of the problems will help to develop broiler farming which intern will increase family income and also creation of employment opportunities in the country. More detailed study is required about the marketing system of broiler intermediaries and their costs, margin and profits before making final recommendation.

  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.

  This study was conducted at Chittagong Government Veterinary College Pahartali, Chittagong to know the productive performance of Fayoumi chicken under intensive management. The Fayoumi pullets were collected from the Regional Government Poultry Farm, Pahartali, Chittagong, Bangladesh. The age and weight of each chicken were recorded at the laying of first egg and obtained the age and weight at sexual maturity was 163.63±1.17 days and 1253.11±16.42 g, respectively. Daily egg production was recorded from the onset of lay upto one year and the yearly egg production per hen was obtained 140.72. Eggs were weighted and the average egg weight was obtained 45.79 g.

  The study was conducted at Bangladesh Agricultural University Dairy Farm, Mymensingh to find out the skin thickness in different regions of body of dairy cows and the relationship of skin thickness to milk yield. Twenty five crossbred milking cows of indigenous and Sahiwal were selected for experiment. The skin thickness was measured by Vernier calipers. The skin thickness of the same animals is varies at different regions of the body. The average skin thickness of neck, dewlap, chest, abdomen and hindquarter were 3.33, 4.12, 2.93, 4.23 and 4.20 mm, respectively and the average skin thickness was 4.20±0.90 mm at the five different regions and the milk yield were negative and was significant (p<0.05). The results of the present study indicated that 29% of the variation in milk yield of cows depend on skin thickness and 71% depends on another factors. Form the study it was found that milk production of low skin thickness group was higher then that of medium and high skin thickness group. This may be a fact that low skin thickness cows did not deposited extra fat in their body and utilized most of her energy for milk production.

  The present study was conducted to know the live weight gain of goats under semi-intensive conditions of Chittagong district of Bangladesh during the period of July, 2012 to January, 2013. Data were collected from 72 black Bengal and 32 Jamunapari goats and the kids birth weight and their subsequent live weight at weekly intervals up to age and weight of weaning at sexual maturity was recorded. The weight gains from birth to sexual maturity of two different breeds under 2 different farms were studied. Average birth weight of male and female black Bengal goats kids were 1.22±0.15, 1.01±0.14, 1.42±0.10 and 1.12±0.27 kg, respectively for farm 1 and 2. For Jamunapari goat’s kid birth weight were 1.51±0.07 and 1.42±0.09 kg, for male and females, respectively in the farm 2. The average weaning age was 4 months and the average weaning weight of male and female black Bengal goats were 5.19±0.358, 5.05±0.28, 5.63±0.61 and 5.54±0.41 kg, in the farm 1 and 2, respectively. However, the average weaning weight of male and female Jamunapari was 6.59±0.69 and 6.79±0.31 kg, respectively in farm 2 which was higher than black Bengal. The average age at sexual maturity of black Bengal goat was 8 months. The average weight at sexual maturity of male and female black Bengal goats were 9.82±0.75 and 9.52±0.62 kg, respectively in farm 1 and 9.65±0.75 and 9.138±0.70 kg, respectively in farm 2. The average age at sexual maturity was 9 months for Jamunapari goat. The average weight at sexual maturity of male and female Jamunapari goats was 13.2±0.75 and 14.1±0.82 kg, respectively. The average daily body weight gain from birth to weaning for male and female black Bengal goat was 33.70, 35.11 g day-1 and was 35.67 and 45.94 g day-1, respectively in farm 1 and 2 and for Jamunapari goat was 42.97 and 45.47 g day-1, respectively. The males were grew faster than the females. The predicted live weight gains for both breeds were lowered after fitting the linear regression. The co-efficient of determination (R2) of male and female black Bengal and Jamunapari goats kids similar.
