dc.description.abstractCattle fattening for beef production have become an important business in Bangladesh. Breed, age, characteristics of animals and the source of animals are important for beef fattening. In few areas of Bangladesh a small scale commercial beef fattening program has already been started. Straw is the important crop residue;contribute the major portion of the fibrous part of the diet of the beef cattle.Rice straw is the basal feed for ruminants with low nutritive value and low digestibility.Farmers use rice straw of traditional verities, green grass, sugarcane tops, wheat and rice bran, molasses, pulses bran and locally available resources such as pumpkin, carrot, bananas, vegetables by products, rice gruel, boiled rice bran, oil cakes etc for beef fattening. The chemical treatment of straw is the most effective and economic method to improving the quality. Straw is mainly treated with urea and molasses and in some cases chemical treatment also done by the former. Urea molasses straw treatment in beef cattle resulted higher body weight, dressing percentage and also in better carcass quality than untreated straw. The acute shortage of feeds and fodder has long been identified as a serious constraint to optimum livestock production in Bangladesh. The nutritional factor is considered a major constraint to livestock productivity. Traditional grazing field is a scarce except in some pockets in Pabna and Sylph districts. Farmers used three years old cattle for beef fattening and maximum growth rate between 1.1 year to 1.4 years of age. Cattle fattening period is 4.5 months in rural areas of Bangladesh. For fattening, habitat and feeding are important. Feeding of urea treated rice straw with to the cattle shows better utilization of roughages as well as rapid live weight gain. Anthelmintics were supplied during this period for better metabolism of drugs. The experiment proved that treatment of rice straw with urea-molasses increase the protein, energy as well as palatability and tenderness of rice straw which subsequently increase the intake as well as growth of the animals. Butaphosphan and cyanocobalamine (Catophos-inj.) can be an important adjunct in hastening recovery and minimizing the effects of nutrient deficiencies related to poor feed intake.en_US
