Abstract

A study was conducted to assess the income and employment generation pattern of tribal women related to animal husbandry (AH) practices. Data were collected from 100 tribal respondents of 4 villages of Anuppur block of Anuppur district (MP). The study revealed that nearly all the tribal families were living below poverty line and they were employed at home. None of the respondent was engaged with employment generation activities related to animal husbandry from outside of their home. Majority of the respondents (76%) were engaged in AH activities for duration of 60 to 180 minutes per day and had medium level of employment status. Land holding and herd size of the respondents were positively and significantly correlated with the employment status of tribal women in AH practices.

Abstract

In the present study, a total of 2217 goat lungs were examined and out of these, 571 specimens showing frank lesions were collected for further histopathological examination. The infestation of flukes was recorded in 1.58 per cent cases of the total affected lungs. Grossly, the lesions found on the surface of lungs were pea sized, soft and raised from the surface and were reddish purple in color. Microscopically, the sections of flukes present in the lung parenchyma showed spiny cuticle and suckers with varying size and shape. Some were immature, while, the others were mature. In most cases, the surrounding tissue showed haemorrhages and the hemosiderin laden macrophages. Cellular infiltration predominantly of lymphocytes, eosinophils and macrophages was observed in the affected areas. In some cases, the flukes migrated from the site of haemorrhages and were seen among the damaged alveoli. These flukes could not be identified.

Abstract

The present study was conducted on four humerii of adult Chinkara. The musculo-spiral groove was shallow and deltoid tuberosity was less prominent. The head was roughly rounded and the neck was well-defined. The lateral tuberosity was large and curved over the inter-tubercular groove. The medial tuberosity was much smaller and divide was not noticeably. The coronoid fossa and olecranon fossae communicated by a small supra-trochlear foramen in some specimens, which was the most striking feature.

Abstract

The objective of the present investigation was to determine the bacterial flora of freshly collected and frozen semen from six clinically healthy Kankrej bulls using ten ejaculates from each bull for ten weeks. In the present study, 60 neat and 60 frozen semen samples were inoculated on brain heart infusion agar (BHI) at 37 °C for 24 hours. Out of 60 neat samples, 13 (21.66 %) samples were positive for gram positive cocci, 22 (36.66 %) samples were positive for gram negative bacilli and remaining 25 (41.66 %) samples were negative for any bacterial growth, whereas out of 60 frozen semen samples, all the samples were negative for bacterial growth. It can be concluded that freshly collected Kankrej bull semen contains normal bacterial flora, which are non pathogenic and sensitive against benzyl penicillin and streptomycin added to the semen dilutors.
