Thu, 20 Feb01:00 AM - 01:45 AMNutritional Value of Tiger Nut (Cyperus esculentus) Offal on the Performance of Broiler Chickens Session
#Double Tree By Hilton Hotel

A 56 - dayexperiment was conducted to evaluate the response of broiler chickens fed gradedlevels of Tiger nut offal (TNO) as an energy source. Fiveiso-nitrogenous and iso-caloric diets tagged T1, T2, T3, T4 and T5, werecompounded to contain 23 and 20% crude protein and 2800 and 3000 kcal/kg ofmetabolizable energy for starter and finisher phases, respectively. The TNO wasincluded at 0, 5, 10, 15 and 20% levels in treatments, respectively such that T1served as the control diet. A total 200 birds were allotted to the 5treatment groups, replicated 4 times in a Completely Randomized Design (CRD); eachreplicate was allotted 10 birds. The results showed that there were nosignificant variation (P>0.05) in the values obtained for growth parameters,economics of production, haematological parameters and serum biochemistry.However, there was significant difference(P<0.05) in dressed weight (1155.00 vs. 1350.00 vs. 1350.00 vs. 1525.00 and1530.00 gbird-1) and shanks weight (59.50 vs. 100.00 vs. 67.00 vs.85.00 and 60.00 gbird-1) which increased across the treatments asthe levels of inclusion of TNO increased in the diets. Birds fed the diets 15(T4) and 20% (T5) gave the best results compared to those fed the control andother levels.From the results of this experiment, poultry farmercan use up to 20% of TNO as a replacement for conventional energy source in thediet of broiler chickens without compromising the meat quality and healthstatus of the birds.

Thu, 20 Feb09:00 AM - 09:45 AMLeptospira epidemiology in dairy cattle of Bangladesh Session
#Double Tree By Hilton Hotel

BovineLeptospirosis causes enormous economic loss due to reproduction failure. Noscientific attempt has previously been taken to investigate epidemiologicaldiversity of Leptospira in commercialdairy cattle of Bangladesh. Hence, a cross–sectional study was conducted in 19 upazillas from 12 districts of 7 divisionswere randomly chosen for the study. A total 43 dairy cattle farm, 1 – 6 farmsper upazilla was recruited based on the presence of increasing abortion historywithin past six months. A pretested questionnaire was used to collectepidemiological information through face to face interview and directobservation. Blood and urine samples and aborted fetuses were collected forlaboratory evaluation. Sero–positivity for Leptospirawas evaluated on the samples obtained using ELISA technique. Dark FieldMicroscopy Examination was carried on urine samples. Aborted fetus wasevaluated through bacteriological culturing followed by PCR. The PCR positivesamples were further sequenced for phylogenetic analysis. The overall sero –prevalence of Leptospira was 17.9%in dairy cattle in Bangladesh. The proportionate Leptospira prevalence was 55.6 % in cattle (n=45) and 32% in fetuses (n=25) and 32% in specimens obtained from fetuses(n=100) were estimated from urine and fetal sample, respectively. Breed and agewere identified as potential risk factors for Leptospira sero – prevalence in dairy cattle. One of the sequences of Leptospira isolatein thepresent study had a close congener (78%) of the sequence of Leptospira isolated from cattle inBrazil.  Overall results suggest Leptospira is commonly circulating indairy cattle in Bangladesh.

Thu, 20 Feb09:45 AM - 10:30 AMRabies virus infection stimulates nitric oxide (NO) production and enhances iNOS expression in brain and spinal cord of rabid buffalo Session
#Double Tree By Hilton Hotel

Tounderstand the potential role of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) in thepathogenesis of rabies virus (RV) induced encephalopathy, the activity of iNOSwas determined in the brain of rabid buffaloes by using immunohistochemistry. RVinfection of the CNS is a classic example for understanding the pathogenesis ofneurotropic viral infection. Nitric oxide (NO) has been implicated as acontributor to the host’s innate defense against viral infections includingthose affecting the CNS. NOis one of the short-lived diffusible molecules catalysedby NOS in macrophages,T-lymphocytes, neurons and activated astrocytes. NO is known to induceneurodegenerative diseases,demyelination and neuronal cell death by apoptosis. The replication ofRV in neuronal cells induces NO secretion which causes increasedexpression of iNOS after rabies virus infection that triggers thesecretion of proinflammtory cytokines (IL-1β, IFN-γ, TNF-α etc.) causingpathological changes. Thepurpose of this study was to elucidate the potential role of induciblenitric oxide synthase (iNOS) in pathogenesis of rabies encephalitis. Diagnosisof rabies from 36 clinically suspected buffalo brain samples was done by goldstandard fluorescent antibody test (FAT). Representative histopathologicalsections were subjected to immunostaining for detection of Negri bodies as wellas inducible NOS (iNOS). A semi-quantitative grading system was used to gradethe intensity of staining on a scale of 0 to 3. Increased expression of iNOSwas detected in neurons of the brain stem and Purkinje cells of cerebellum.iNOS was diffusely localized in the cytoplasm of the affected neurons and somemicroglial cells. These findings indicate that iNOS plays a vital role in theneuropathogenesis of rabies virus infection and may serve as important targetsfor future therapy.

Thu, 20 Feb10:30 AM - 11:15 AMInfluence of fossil shell flour supplementation on wool parameters, feed acceptance and body condition scores of Dohne-merino rams Session
#Double Tree By Hilton Hotel

Theabundance of fossil shell flour (FSF) in many countries of the world has led toincreased interest in its use as a feed additive in sheep diets. However, itseffects on wool growth parameters and feeding behavior is unclear, and thereare no reports on the effect of its inclusion in the diet on wool production orgrowth of Dohne Merino rams. Thus, the objectives of this study were todetermine the effects of varying inclusion levels of Fossil shell flour on bodyweight, wool parameters and feeding behavior in Dohne merino rams. Fossil shellflour (dietary food-grade) were fed sixteen wethers Dohne-merino sheep (18 ±1·5 kg body weight), in a complete randomized design with four animals pertreatment. Sheep were fed a basal diet without FSF addition (control, 0%), orwith the addition of FSF (2% T2), (4%T3) or (6% T4) of diet DM for 105 days.Total weight gain and body condition score of FSF supplemented treatment weresignificantly different from the control (P<0.05). Wool yield, staplelength, fibre diameter coefficient variation and fibre <15 % of FSF includedration were also statistically different from the control (P<0.05) whilefibre diameter of the FSF supplemented treatment was slightly varied from thecontrol. (P≥0.11). The addition of FSF to the diets makes Dohne-merino rams topreferred it to the control T1 which has no FSF supplemented. This studyindicates the potential for Fossil shell flour to be included in the diets ofDohne-merino rams at up to 6% DM to improve the body weight and body conditionscores, feed intake through preference, wool yield and quality.

The studyrevealed that the squat lobster have recorded and report for the first time inIndian Coast of Gulf of Mannar, off pearl coast, South-east coast of India. The dataset for the two squat lobster super familiesGalatheoidea and Chirostyloidea (Taxonomy and Phylogeny) and highlights theutility of these groups to global diversity and diversification. Squat lobstersare sporadic, widespread and biological diverse, and, importantly, arewell-resolved taxonomically, with recent documentation of all published recordsfor all known genus and species (Family Chirostylidae (9 Species) and Galatheidae (43 species). A total of 52 species (9 from Family Chirostylidae and 43from Family Galatheidae) are recorded, mostly from the deeper waters of pearlcoast of Gulf of Mannar, India. Discardsinclude the unwanted or un-mandated component of “bycatch”, or incidentallycaught non-target catch, the bulk by-catch deep sea fauna and flora landedby larger trawlers (more than 400 horse power- 262 trawlers), which operated indeeper waters off pearl waters, the number of specimen of squat lobster wasobtained from Southeast and west coast of India. The average depth hascalculated from minimum and maximum depth where two depths were available instraight line curve of southeast coast of India; otherwise the single depthrecord was used for only seasonal occurrence of this species. Ongoingcollections continue to explore new offshore regions, between the longitude andlatitude, off pearl coast, South India (08° 22.871’N 78° 22.409’E -08°31.912’N 78° 25.327’E)
