  Milk is recognised as complete food for human beings because it contains most of the essential nutrients. Besides, traditional components now it is proved that milk is also a good source of biopeptides and other bioactive components which are necessary for body maintenance and to fight against several disease conditions. Minerals present in milk are good source of bone health and body cells functioning. Various vitamins such as vitamin-A, D, B12 and others are a vital source for the body coat and physiological functions of the human body. The conjugated linoleic acid naturally present in milk is a good fat for human health. Various components of milk are also necessary for thyroid function, protection against metabolic disorders, gout and other similar malfunctioning. Besides, several other components the prebiotics, probiotics, symbiotic, biopeptides and bioactive components along with unique source of protein (casein), carbohydrate (lactose) etc. may serves as live saving drugs in emergency cases of the human body.

  Vitamin-B12 is a vital vitamin for human health because the deficiency of this vitamin leads to the conditions like anaemia, various neurological disorders such as numbness, pins and needles sensations, a burning feeling in the feet, shaking, muscle fatigue, sleep disorders, memory loss, irrational anger, impaired mental function and Alzheimer’s. Besides these effects its deficiency also exerts some psychological conditions such as dementia, depression, psychosis and obsessive-compulsive behaviour. To overcome these problems daily intake of animal based food is recommended. In case of its deficiency signs some additional or supportive drugs containing vitamin-B12 either in form of pills and in emergency cases injections may be taken.

  Probiotic feeding leads to the development of stable type of micro flora which helps the bird to resist infections noticeably in the intestinal tract and helps in several ways. With this objective present study was under taken to evaluate the effect of probiotic on performance of commercial broiler chicks. In study two groups one without probiotic (P0) and another with Probiotic (P) supplementation were considered for the study. The experiment consisted of two replicates for probiotic groups. The performance of broiler was evaluated in terms of growth, feed efficiency and percent mortality at 6th week of age. Data were analyzed on survivor and equal number of bird’s per subclass basis. Analysis of variance revealed that the difference between replicates were not significant for the different traits under study as such all subsequent analysis was performed on combined sex basis. Inclusion of probiotic in diet also affected highly significantly both the sexes for this age of body weight. Broiler group fed with, diet P (with Probiotic) were significantly heavier than the group fed with, diet P0 (without Probiotic). The inclusion of probiotics showed increased feed efficiency, better quality of broiler meat. The probiotic exerted highly significant effect on 2nd, 3rd and 5th weekly feed efficiency and also on overall feed efficiency. Overall performance of the broilers feded with the diet containing probiotics was found better in terms of feed efficiency, growth and meat quality. It might be due to suppressive effect of probiotic on unwanted organism and promotion of health status of the broilers.

  Rapid growth rate in the poultry industry poses the problem of huge production of poultry excreta. Hence, utilization of this vast organic waste might be a critical issue in near future. One of the potential uses of poultry excreta could be its utilization as a source of protein in poultry ration. With this objective the study was conducted to evaluate the effect of Dried Poultry Excreta (DPE) supplementation on the performance of broilers, in terms of growth, conformation traits and carcass characteristics. Analysis of variance revealed that the difference between replicates were none significant for the different traits. In the study, maximum shank length was found in the feed containing 5% DPE in both male and female. The keel bone length was increased when DPE increased in diet. The breast angle measurements of males were higher than the females. The males had the widest breast angle with 5% DPE level at 4th week of age and 10% DPE level at 6th week of age. The% leg yield on combined sex basis ranged from 31.7 to 32.3%, breast yield 26.3 to 26.6%, back with neck yield 24.4 to 25.0% and wing yield 16.9 to 17.3% within three DPE levels of diet. All DPE levels of the study in broilers diet can be implemented and was very well accepted but for better results it is recommended that DPE should be replaced in broilers diet between 5 to 10%.

  Conjugated linoleic acid is a good fat which is naturally found in many foods like milk and meat of the ruminants particularly cows, sheep and goats. It is a potent cancer fighter along with several other positive health benefits. It can be transformed from lenoleic acid by the rumen bacteria. It is simply an excretory metabolites or metabolic intermediates of rumen bacteria and normally produced in ruminants as for symbiotic purposes thus it promotes health and longevity of the animals. CLA is also capable to prevent obesity, atherosclerosis and diabetes mellitus etc. The only need is to exploit the possibilities for its beneficial effects and exploration of its natural sources as a food. Among all organic milk is a richest food sources and may be the good alternative in this concerned. However, its detection, monitoring and quality control are the prime considerations.

  The aim of this theme is to highlight the important points related to melatonin. It is a hormone secreted in pineal glands and helps in the induction of sleep in human beings. Melatonin is a naturally occurring compound in animals, plants and microbes. It is responsible for the regulation of circadian rhythms for several biological functions. It is sensitive to the light and its concentration in the milk varies with the intensity of light. The basic functions of this hormone include antioxidant property, in correction of sleeping disorders, in alleviation of jet lag and in prevention of cancers. Besides these major functions, it also has some associated functions like protection of skin damage from ultraviolet light. Generally, <0.3 mg melatonin is required per day for human beings for usual induction of sleep and relaxation.
