  This study was undertaken with a view to determining the effect of partial green grass over dry feeding on the productive performance of early lactating crossbred cows. With that understanding, fifteen early lactating crossbred cows having nearly similar body weight, body condition score, milk yield and stage of lactation were selected and divided into three groups composed of five in each group (A, B and C group). Cows of A group received 2 kg concentrates without green grass daily. Group B and C received daily 1.85 kg conc. + 3 kg green grass and 1.75 kg conc. + 6 kg green grass respectively along with ad libitum straw for each cow of all groups. Daily feed intake were recorded. Live weight changes of cows were measured fortnightly and condition scores were measured before starting and at the end of the experiment. Milk composition (fat, SNF, protein and ash) as percentage were determined monthly. The average daily DM intake were 7.07±0.12, 7.16±0.03 and 7.78±0.04 kg for A, B and C group, respectively. This study showed that the DM intake, live weight gain, body condition score, milk yield and milk composition in respect of fat, SNF and protein were significantly (p<0.01 and p<0.05) higher in C group followed by B group and lowest values obtained in A group. Considering the present research, it would be fair to conclude that the partial green grass over dry feeding showed the positive effect on the productive performance of early lactating crossbred cows.

  A factorial bioassay was made to evaluate 4 different levels of exogenous saponin (S); 0 mg (So), 25 mg (S1), 50 mg (S2) and 75 mg (S3) per kg and also a combination (SC) of 50 mg saponin plus 50 mg L-carnitine (S4) per kg maize-soybean meal based basal diet during the late autumn. In all, 5 experimental diets being iso-nutritive (as per NRC, 1994 recommendation) but for variable in presence and contents of saponin and L-carnitine were prepared. 8-day old male broiler chicks (n=150, Starboro) were distributed randomly into 15 groups of 10 chicks in each housed in separate pen of littered floor. Three such groups received each of 5 test diets ad libitum as mash up to 8 weeks of age. The plenty of water was made available to all chicks during the experimental period. It was found that S2 diet significantly improved body weight gain (BWG) during growing (8 days to 3 weeks) period when compared with S0, S1, S3 and S4. Dietary S and SC had no significant (p>0.05) effect separately and jointly on feed efficiency, protein efficiency and performance index. But S3 and S4 diets reduced abdominal fat significantly (p<0.05), while only S3 significantly (p<0.05) increased tastes weight. S and SC added all diets significantly (p<0.05) reduced liver, gizzard and thyroid size with little enlargement of spleen size compared to S0 fed group. Finally, it was concluded that 75 mg (S3) per kg exogenous saponin could be used as feed additive in broiler diet to improve growth and carcass quality.
