Abstract

Regional Agricultural Research Station Parwanipur have four outreach research sites in four different districts viz Bara, Parsa, Rautahat and Makwanpur of Mid Development Region of the country. Where different livestock research activities are being tested in farmers managed condition with the objective of verification and some sort of dissemination of promising technologies. A number of technologies in livestock sector were accomplished in last couple of years. An attempt was made to improve Terai goat (Capra Hircus) through introduction of Jamunapari buck within three goat rearing farmers group in Bara district. The result revealed that third generation (F3) achieved the highest weight gain followed by second generation (F2) comparing at birth, after 4 months, 6 months, 9 months and 12 months of birth. Twining was observed highest in 3rd generation followed by first generation. Interestingly, triplet kidding was found to be highest in first generation followed by third generation but no triplets were observed in second generation. The highest number of kids’ production were observed in first generation and the lowest in second generation. However, kids’ mortality was also observed higher in first generation. Major health problems were diarrhea, bloat, mucus discharge from nose, and parasites such as flukes, worms, ticks, mites and flea were observed in all the growth period and generations. The most vulnerable period for disease incidence in the kids were observed up to 4 months of age. A comparative study was conducted in forage crop with four oat varieties to select the best one in farmers’ field condition. The result showed interaction between varieties and harvesting days were highly significant. Mean yield of green biomass of Bundel variety performed well (3092 g/m2) followed by NZA 30003 (2735 g/m2) and Kent (2322 g/m2). First harvesting at 60 days produced the highest green forage ((3445 g/m2) followed by 90 days (2415 g/m2) and 120 days (1401 g/m2) of harvesting.
