  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.

  Virulence and drug sensitivity of six Flavobacterium columnare isolates recovered from different fish species of Bangladesh were compared. Immersion method was employed to infect climbing perch (Anabus testudineus) using three different concentrations of bacteria viz. 1x 108, 1x 107 and 1x 106 colony forming units (cfu)/ml. The percentage infection and mortality caused by each isolate varied from 0-100% indicating wide variations in virulence. Isolates F03 and F32 appeared highly virulent in all challenge doses. At the highest challenge dose of 1x 108 cfu/ml, these two isolates were able to kill 100% fish by the end of the trial at day 7 post-challenge. While they killed only 10 and 30% fish respectively, at the lowest dose of 1x 106 cfu/ml during this period. Infection in fish due to challenge with these isolates started to appear by day 3 post-challenge. Isolates F10 and F35 were considered as medium virulent since they were able to kill 50 and 60%, and 20 and 40% fish at 1x 108 and 1x107 cfu/ml respectively, at the end of the trial. These two isolates were unable either to infect or kill any fish at 1x 106 cfu/ml. The other two isolates F16 and F25, appeared low or non-virulent. All the six isolates were found sensitive to six selected antibiotic substances appart from isolate F16, which was only sensitive to sulphaurethoxazole.
