  A 6 x 6 diallel cross (excluding reciprocal) of barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) dictated both additive and non-additive components were important but dominance components were more predominant than additive components in controlling the inheritance of all the characters under study. The asymmetric distribution of dominant and recessive alleles at loci was found for all the characters. At least 3 groups of genes were found in controlling the dominance in yield. The highest heritability (89%) in narrow sense was observed in 1000 grain weight. Vr-Wr graph indicated over dominance and genetic diversity among the parents.

  Milk studies within two days post delivery in 90 randomly selected women of three socio-economic (low, middle and high) and three age groups (< 25, 26-32 and > 33 years) of Faisalabad, Pakistan, revealed an overall concentration of vitamin-A to be 718.85 RE/L. The milk vitamin-A showed non-significant difference between socio-economic groups, but was higher (P<0.01) in women of > 33 years (863.41 RE/L) of age. The mean specific gravity of milk was 1.0265±264 and the pH was 7.0876 and showed non-significant difference in socio-economic and age groups. The mean total milk proteins was 1.31±4 per cent and was higher (P<0.05) in women of 26-32 years of age, however, it showed non-significant difference between socio-economic groups. The mean milk lactose and fat was 5.76±5 and 2.89±3 per cent, respectively and showed non-significant difference between socio-economic and age groups.

  Seventy-five battery brooded (up to 3 weeks) broilers were transferred on conventional rice husk littered floor (CRLF) and were reared up to 49 days of age. On the other hand, seventy-five broiler chicks were reared on CRLF from day-old to 49 days of age served as control. The body weight of the battery brooded birds at 28 days of age was significantly (P<0.01) higher than that of floor reared birds. Rearing battery brooded broiler on CRLF following transfer depressed growth rate (at 35 days of age) in comparison with CRLF birds, but at the end of the experiment, there were no significant differences in body weight gain. Non-significant differences were also observed in case of feed intake, feed conversion efficiency and dressed yield between two management systems at the end of the experiment. There were no birds having breast blister irrespective of management system. Mortality percentage was higher in case of CRLF than that of battery brooded birds on CRLF. Battery brooding up to 3 weeks of age saved space. Males had higher body weight (P<0.05) and shank weight (P<0.01) than those of females. From the present study it is evident that battery brooder can serve as a positive brooder, because after transfer from battery brooder to CRLF there is no negative effect on overall performance.
