  The carcass characteristics and meat yield studied using a total 20 number of cage reared spent hens of White Leghorn (WLH), White Rock (WR), Rhode Island Red (RIR) and Barred Plymouth Rock (BPR). There were a significant different (p< 0.05) between breeds with live weight and dressed weight although it differ breed to breed. In case of dressed weight it is observed higher in RIR intermediate in BPR & WR and lower in WLH. Shank length, head weight, liver weight and gizzard weight were statistically non-significant between breeds. Shank length was statistically non-significant between breeds but shank weight was highly significant between them and highest in WR, intermediate in RIR & BPR but lowest in WLH. Viscera loss is higher in WLH then RIR and WR, BPR are in almost similar and the similar trained was found for feather loss and blood discharge. The result exhibits that the RIR carcass is the best, BPR and WR are in second position and the lowest is WLH in qualitative or quantitative measure not only for heavy breed but the total loss (viscera, feather and blood) is the lowest in comparison to the other three breeds. On the contrary, correlation between dressed carcass weight and abdominal fat was estimated and highly correlation was found in WLH followed by BPR, RIR and WR. If dressed carcass weight increase 1 (g) then abdominal fat increase by 0.2136(g), 0.1297(g), 0.1819 (g) and 0.0591 (g) respectively for WLH, BPR, RIR and WR. Finally it can be concluded that the RIR carcass is the best in terms of quality and quantity. The WR & BPR are almost in similar holding second position and the lowest is WLH.

  Calving records with sex ratio of births were studied in summer, monsoon and winter of local, crossbred and purebred cows. The higher percentage of birth found during summer (39.07%) followed by winter (32.79%) and monsoon (28.14%) and female and male ratio were 48.25:51.75; 44.66:55.34 and 40.83:59.17, respectively in summer, monsoon and winter in local cows; whereas in crossbred cows, birth percentage is highest in summer (36.96%) followed by winter (35.98%) and monsoon (27.06%) and no significant difference were found on sex ratio of births of crossbred cows. The highest percentage of birth of purebred at Holstein-Friesian and Sahiwal cows are noted in winter (40.93%) followed by monsoon (30.48%) and summer (28.59%) and no significant difference were found on sex ratio of births of purebred cows in different seasons.

  In the study areas records of 100 dairy cows collected from small holder dairy farms out of which were 20 Friesian cross, 19 Sahiwal cross, 29 Sindhi cross, 32 indigenous dairy cows. Those dairy farm were considered to evaluate post partum heat period, dry period, services per conception (SPC), age at first calving, calving to first service, lactation period and calving interval. The average post partum heat period of Friesian cross, Sahiwal cross, Sindhi cross and indigenous dairy cows were 98.75 ± 40.58, 97.63 ± 36.03, 114.65 ± 21.54 and 108.46 ± 36.32 days, respectively and the average length of dry period were 127 ± 46.66, 136.05 ± 23.42, 138.39 ± 41.78 and 170.00 ± 68.89 days, respectively. The average services per conception for Friesian cross, Sahiwal cross, Sindhi cross and indigenous dairy cows were 1.65 ± 1.65, 2.05 ± 1.17, 2.206 ± 1.01 and 1.41 ± 0.56, respectively and age at first calving were 36.25 ± 3.48, 37.26 ± 3.01, 37.65 ± 5.21 and 40.03 ± 3.54 months, respectively. Calving to first service of different crossbred and indigenous dairy cows were 109+ 37.26, 114.47 ± 38.89, 113.10 ± 27.20 and 124.53 ± 43.33 days and calving interval were 373.25 ± 35.25, 383.42 ± 34.44, 397.77 ± 37.07 and 418.78 ± 36.74 days, respectively. The length of lactation period of different crossbred and indigenous dairy cows was 253 ± 24.73, 256.31 ± 24.31, 255.86 ± 27.58 and 230.62 ± 30.68 days, respectively. The post partum heat period and calving to first service did not differ significantly among the different crossbred and indigenous dairy cows. The traits like, services per conception, age at first calving, calving interval and lactation period however differed highly significantly (P<0.01). The dry period also significantly (p<0.05) different among the genetic groups. The results obtained in this study indicated the reproductive performances of crossbred cows were superior to indigenous cows.

  In this study sixty three farmers mainly from land-less and small category, having some previous experience of rearing goats were selected. There were three genetic groups viz. I) jamunapari male × black bengal female ii) selected black bengal male × selected black bengal female and iii) random black bengal. Feeding and management systems of keeping goats were almost similar. No extra inputs were provided to them except grazing from morning to evening. The main objective of this study was to investigate the effect of selection and crossbreeding in black bengal goats on various reproductive characteristics. Traits considered for the present study were age at puberty, number of services per conception, gestation length, litter size, age at first kidding, post partum heat period, kidding interval, abortion rate and survival rate of kids. Analysis of variance indicated a highly significant (p<0.01) effect of genetic groups on post-partum heat period, kidding interval and abortion rate. Gestation length was significantly (p<0.05) affected by genetic groups. Age at puberty, number of services per conception, litter size, age at first kidding and survival rate were not affected significantly (P>0.05) by genetic groups.
