  Experiment was conducted to study the effect of Bradyrhizobium inoculation at different nitrogen levels viz. 0, 20, 40, 60 and 80 kg N ha-1 on Binamoog-2. Bradyrhizobium inoculation increased dry matter production, nodulation, pod production, seed yield, harvest index and benefit cost ratio. Nitrogen negatively affected on nodulation and harvest index. Increase of nitrogen fertilizer increased seed yield up to 40 kg N ha-1 and straw yield up to 60 kg N ha-1. Highest seed yield (1607 kg ha-1) and benefit cost ratio (2.35) obtained when 40 kg N ha-1 was applied with Bradyrhizobium inoculation.

  Feeds and fodder and the quantities fed to large ruminants (cattle and buffalo) in eight different areas of Bangladesh involving 96 farmers were recorded for a year from January 1988 to 1989. Roughage like straw naturally available seasonal green grass and weds, tree leaves, water hyacinth, legumes and sugarcane tops were the major feeds offered to the animal by a bigger proportion of farmers in the study areas. It was found that amount varied (P<0.01) from area to area. The overall consumption of straw, green grass, leaves, legumes and sugarcane tops per day and head were 1.9+2.6, 5.1+4.9, 0.3+2.0, 0.1+1.0 and 0.01+0.07 kg respectively. By product concentrates, mostly rice bran, wheat bran and different oil cakes were offered to the animals in the studied areas. However, the amounts offered also varied (P<0.01) from area to area. Consumption of as fed rice bran, wheat bran and oil cakes were 0.5+0.7, 0.03+0.1 and 0.01+0.03 kg, respectively. The means and standard deviation indicate a wide range of variations in the amounts of roughage and concentrates offered. Furthermore assignment was the not systematic due to the availability of foodstuffs, lack of knowledge of farmers and consequences of the inefficient utilization of available feed resources. In addition to feeding roughage and concentrates, farmers graded their animals 6.2 h on an average a day. Grazing also varied (P<0.01) with different areas. It is thus concluded that feeds and feeding and the assignment amount of roughage and concentrates to the large ruminants are very poor practices of large ruminants exercised in Bangladesh. The assignment amounts are however, not upto the requirement of animals. Feeding animals should be improved by exploring the unconventional feeds of those areas and also by the best management and utilization of available resources. Farmer·s knowledge about feeding practices of animals should also be improved to increase animal production in Bangladesh through proper research extension linkages.

  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.
