  A study was conducted with 48 Hanwoo calves from birth to 90 days to know the effect of natural feed additives on growth, feed intake and blood profiles. The calves were arranged in four groups; control, antibiotic (Neomycine 110 ppm), propolis (0.05%) and illite (2%) having 12 calves (male female ratio 6:6) in each. The claves were supplied pellet feeds ad libitum. They were allowed to suck mother’s milk and timothy grass hay were supplied after 1 month and multi nutrient block. Water was supplied ad libitum through the water tub. The significantly highest (p<0.05) BW and ADG were found in antibiotic fed calves than other groups. There were almost similar values observed in control and illite fed calves. Significant lowest (p<0.05) weight was observed in propolis fed calves. Highest feed intake was recorded in control group followed by antibiotic, illite and propolis group. Illite group seems to be suitable among the feed additives groups but the daily weight gain was statistically lowest (p<0.05). Blood profiles didn’t show any effects after addition of additives except significant reduction of A/G ratio. So considering all the factors both the natural resources, lllite and Propolis didn’t show potential for production of Hanwoo calf at pre-weaning.

  A study was conducted with 48 Hanwoo post weaning calves from 91-120 days to know the effect of natural feed additives on growth, feed intake and blood profiles. The calves were arranged in four groups; control, antibiotic (Neomycine 110 ppm), propolis (0.05%) and illite (2%) having 12 calves (male female ratio 6:6) in each. The claves were supplied pellet feeds ad libitum. Multi nutrient block and timothy grass hay were supplied to the calves. Water was supplied ad libitum through the water tub. Significantly lowest (p<0.05) initial BW was recorded at the beginning of post-weaning age in propolis group compared to others. The ADG at 5 months age were found statistically similar among the groups which indicates the effectiveness of the propolis. Higher feed intakes were recorded in control and propolis group followed by antibiotic and illite group. Illite and propolis group showed better compared to control diet in terms of ADG and feed efficiency. Addition of propolis and illite in the diet of post-weaning calves increased the percentage of platelets count (p<0.05) keeping other blood component statistically unchanged. The serum albumin and globulin values also falls within the range of antibiotic group although lowest IgM was recorded in illite group. In conclusion, the natural resources, illite and propolis showed potential without any detrimental effect for production of Hanwoo post-weaning calves.

  Three hundred commercial broiler chicks of three different strains ( Arbor Acres, ISA Vedette and Hybro) each of 100 were reared from day-old to 6 weeks of age to compare their performance characteristics under Bangladesh condition in winter. Body weight gain and feed consumption up to 6 weeks of age were significantly higher in ISA Vedette than in Arbor Acres and Hybro. There was no significant difference between Arbor Acres and Hybro with respect to these variables. Survivability and feed efficiency among the strains were non-significant, although Arbor Acres showed slightly higher survivability than Hybro and ISA Vedette. Despite a slightly higher livability in Arbor Acres, it may be concluded that ISA Vedette may perform the best in winter than in Hybro and Arbor Acres. The later two strains may also be recommended for commercial boiler production in winter, but priority may be given to ISA Vedette strain.

  The mean yield of rice, rice straw, rice bran, till oil seed, mango tree and jack fruit tree number and other feeds decreased significantly (p<0.01) after shrimp culture compared with before shrimp culture. The salinity and pH of water under shrimp culture area (saline area) are significantly (p<0.01) higher than that of non-shrimp culture area (non-saline area). In case of soil, the average EC value and pH under shrimp culture area are significantly (p<0.01) higher compared with non-shrimp culture area. The chemical composition of green grass, rice straw and rice bran is similar for both of shrimp culture and non-shrimp culture areas. So the production of livestock feeds have been affected following the shrimp farming practices but it do not affect the feed quality.

  This study was designed to determinate the effects of green tea on growth performance and meat quality of finishing pigs. Ninety crossbreed "Landrace x Large White" pigs were assigned to 5 treatments a completely randomized design. The five dietary treatments were control (no green tea), antibiotic (30 ppm chlortetracycline) and 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0% of green tea added. The weight gain of pigs fed diets containing 2.0% green tea supplementation was significantly lower than that of the antibiotic supplemented (p<0.05). However, the feed intake and feed conversion ratio did not differ among treatments by dietary green tea addition (p>0.05). Crude protein in the carcass of pig showed significantly highest value in 1.0% green tea than control and other green levels (p<0.05) but similar value with antibiotic. The carcass grade was significantly increased in 0.5 and 1.0% green tea treatments (p<0.05) while Thiobarbituric Acid (TBA) value of pork was significantly decreased by 2.0% green tea supplementation (p<0.05).
