  Sero-monitoring of peste des petits ruminants (PPR) in 750 goats and 500 cattle were studied 15 different districts of Bangladesh. This study was undertaken with a view to evaluate the serum antibody level against PPR virus in goats, determination of level of PPR antibodies in large ruminants, and finally to determine the risk of goat population to PPR based on age. The experiment was conducted at the Virology Laboratory of Bangladesh Livestock Research Institute (BLRI), Savar, Dhaka. In most districts, the antibody level against PPR Virus (PPRV) in goats varied between 4-98% with an average 49.33% and only 3-10% was found positive against rinderpest in C-ELISA The highest level of antibody against PPRV was found in Hill tracts (98%) and the lowest in Pabna (4%). In terms of Rinderpest (RP) antibody as being detected by C-ELISA, it was observed that the sera collected from Jessore, Faridpur and Tangail showed very low levels of antibody, which varied between 3-10%. The results from the examination of cattle sera from four selected areas of Bangladesh showed that antibody level against PPRV varied from 17.64-36.84% with an average 24.67% and 0-26.31% found positive against RP in C-ELISA. So the present findings are the indication of future problem in proper evaluation of rinderpest vaccination programme in Bangladesh particularly with low sero-conversion in vaccinating herds as they have already been sensitized by PPRV.

  Three hundred and sixty intestinal samples were examined at necropsy for gastrointestinal nematode parasites of black Bengal goats of Sirajgong district of Bangladesh. Results showed that among various nematode parasites recovered were Haemonchus contortus (67.45 %), Oesophagostomum columbianum (43.27 %) and Gaigeria pachyscelis (41.85 %). Among other nematode parasites Trichuris ovis (28.35 %) and Bunostomum trignocephalum (18.25 %) were found. The seasonal variation in nematode infection was determined by monitoring faecal egg counts of 2138 goats during the same period. The mean egg per gram (epg) of faeces was found to maintain high level during October and November that reached the peak in November at post rainy season.

  The study was carried out during and after an outbreak of foot and mouth disease (FMD) in Baghabari milk shed area, Sirajgonj, Bangladesh for a period of one year. Results showed that the incidence of FMD varied significantly (p<0.01) in different host species with higher incidence in cattle (63.41%) followed by sheep/goats (50.96%) and buffaloes (48.02%). Among cattle, FMD was found to occur significantly (p<0.01) higher in cows (68.01%) than in bulls/bullocks (60.09%) and calves (56.02%). A total of 125 (9.71%) calves died of FMD and the financial loss incurred from this mortality was estimated to be US$ 6250 (@US$ 50/calf). The economic losses due to calf mortality, reduced milk yield and draft power would stand at US$ 163329 for cattle alone. Losses incurred from draft power cattle ranged from 10.5-15.5 kilo-watt hour. The FMD virus types were identified as Asia1 and O by examining 32 tongue epithelial samples adopting complement fixation test (CFT).

  Hypothetical remarks about the resistance of local native Bangladeshi chickens were compared with an exotic breed like Fayoumi towards Gumboro disease. A reserve experimental result was obtained with increased susceptibility of the locals than the exotics. Poor bursal enlargement along with the absence of many post-mortem lesions and peculiar hepatomegally were notable post-mortem lesions in locals. Maternal antibody attains a zero level as detected at 19 days of age by agar gel precipitation test. Materiality in locals 46% and exotic 38% was encountered in both the breeds following challenge with a virulent field isolate of Gumboro disease virus. Onset of morbidity proceeded in the locals. A spiking death curve was observed in both the breeds. Mortality started since day 2 following challenge and continued till day 5 except in the locals, where it ended on day 3 post challenge. It is assumed that changes in the method of feeding and rearing may act as natural stress affecting the cell-mediated immunity related to genetics and perhaps rendered them more susceptible.

  The duration of storage of frozen bull semen with acceptable quality without pouring any liquid nitrogen into 2-liter container was investigated under field conditions. One frozen straw of each of the 3 donor bulls was evaluated daily for 15 days with regard to sperm motility and normal sperm morphology with respect to acrosome, mid-piece and tail. When frozen semen straws were stored within 2-liter liquid nitrogen (LN) container without pouring any LN into the container up to 15 days of storage, the sperm motility and normal sperm morphology decreased gradually up to 10 days of storage and then the sperm motility and the normal sperm morphology decreased significantly (P<0.001). The motility did not differ significantly between bulls. However, the proportion of normal sperm morphology varied significantly between bulls (P<0.001). In conclusion, frozen bull semen straws can be stored in 2-liter liquid nitrogen (LN) container with acceptable quality for 10 days without any LN under field conditions in Bangladesh.
