  • Overall prevalence of ectoparasitic infestation among pet and stray dogs surveyed in and around Bhubaneswar was 52.42% which can be considered high and development of resistance in Rhipicephalussanguineusagainst cypermethrin at low concentration was observed which require more sensitive studies by molecular technique.
  • Two pathogenic species of babesia (canis, B.Canisvogeli) are prevalent in dogs in and around Bhubaneswar as per PCR based study

 

Dept. of Vety. Microbiology

 

  • In vitro action of biocide against biofilms forming Bovine mastitis isolates has been detected and it was found that neem oil has got the best biocide against biofilm forming microbes.
  • Virulence factors of biofilm forming salmonella in poultry detected and it was found that whole all antigen was the best agent for screening salmmonellosis. In poultry
  • Biobden of multidrug resistant E. coli in poultry has been studied and it was revealed that Gentamicine, Enro floxacin and Pefloxacin.

 

Department of Veterinary Pathology

  • Surveillance of bovine theileriosis through various diagnostic parameters was carried out. Blood samples from 74% (3876/5237) of clinically suspected cases of bovine theileriosis were found positive by blood smear examination. Confirmatory diagnosis of T. annulata parasite was made in some sample through PCR amplification of 721 bp nucleotide sequence of Tams1 gene for major merozoite surface antigen using Tann N516F and Tann N517R primers. The forward and reverse sequences were aligned to obtain the 721bp sequences. The new sequence was submitted to GenBank and the accession number obtained is KT222946. This is the first work on molecular diagnosis of Theileriaannulata parasite in Odisha. So this method can be utilized as a valid molecular technique for confirmation of the disease in this region.
  • Escherchia coli were frequently isolated from bacterial enteritis in chickens. Staphylococci were frequently isolated from bacterial dermatitis in chicken in poultry farms of coastal Odisha. Majority of the farms with bacterial dermatitis had history of occurrence of either IBD or CAV.
  • Despite there is development of vaccines and disease resistant breeds, viral neoplstic diseases of poultry i.e. Marek‟s Disease and Avian leukosis are still prevalent in many organized poultry farms of Odisha. Clinical signs along with gross, cytologiocal and histopathological studies of tumourous lesions of suspected cases can be considered as reliable and inexpensive aids for routine diagnosis in field conditions.

 

 

Department of Animal Nutrition

  • Nutritional supplementation and hormonal protocols improved conception rate and services per conception.
  • Detection of oestrus, oestrus duration and oestrusintensityhave been improved with estra double synch protocol.
  • Both green and dry maize stover can be better utilized by the farmers of maize growing area for feeding to their dairy cattle.

 

Department of Animal Breeding and Genetics

  • Crossbred Jersey cattle is performing well ahead of graded Hariana and Binjharpuri cattle in terms of milk yield.Graded Hariana cattle is better than Binjharpuri cattle for draft ability and production performance.
  • Significant improvement in the kidding rate to 75% in AICRP on Ganjam goat field unit. The least squares mean of body weights were 2.47 ± 0.02, 7.68 ±0.06, 9.85 ± 0.07, 14.44± 0.08 and 18.33±0.09 kg for birth, 3 month, 6 month, 9 month and 12 months respectively. The improvement in body weights at 9 month age and one year age has been 2.56 kg and 5.9 kg respectively as compared to the base year 2001.
  • A total of 250, 420 and 357 does at three centers were tracked throughout the year and they were found to produce 1084 kids with total live weight Rs 9872kg. If the live weight per kg is taken to be Rs 150/- the theaverage potential productivity per doe is estimated to be Rs 1922.49 only. It could be more as the milk component is not added here as the does are milked erratically. There has been significant improvement in the kidding rate to 75% this year.

 

Department of Livestock Production and Management

  • Vencobb birds had better response to different cognitive and learning tests among all, which suggest that the genetics of the birds affects the cognitive and learning ability. Mixed group housing mostly negatively affects the cognitive abilities of birds. With the advancement of age, the spatial memory gathering and processing gets bettered. Leptin acts to facilitate long-term potentiation in the hippocampus, a process important for memory processing, which was evident from the present study. Hence, this may be a reliable indicator of cognition.
  • Fish silage incorporated @ 10% in the diet of broiler chickens can reduce feed costand saveRs 5.0 per kg live weight gain without any adverse effect on performance and carcass characteristics of broilers.
  • Provision of an optimal floor space of 250 cm2 per quail chick resulted in higher body weight, gain in body weight, feed efficiency, dressed and eviscerated yield. It also resulted in lower rate of mortality.

 

Department of Animal Reproduction Gynaecology and Obstetrics

  • Induction of ovulatory estrus with CIDR and ovsynch protocol in postpartum anestrus cows - Treatment of postpartum anestrus cows with CIDR devise may augment the gonadal hormone balance, in turn hastens the resumption of the normal cyclicity with better conception rate.
  • Synchronization of estrous in goats by using different progesterone therapies - Insertion of vaginal sponges impregnated with progesterone induced higher oestrous induction than other methods of intramuscular progesterone therapy in goats.
  • Studies on certain hormonal profile of faeces in captive lions of Nandankanan Biological Park during different phases of reproductive cycle - It was postulated that noninvasive hormonal assay from faecal material can be made from captive wild animals where other conventional method incurs risk to life and successful hormonal assay could be made from the wet faecal samples of lions which could be suitably utilized for other endangered animals which need protection and conservation.

 

Department of Veterinary Surgery and Radiology

  • Surgical exploration and management of intra-abdominal physical obstruction of the gastro-intestional tract in cattle through left-ventra-lateral-oblique laparotomy approach.
  • Management of foot lesions in Asian elephant (Elephas maximus) of Odisha.
  • Studies on ketamine alone and in combination with medazolam for induction of general anaesthesia in buterophanol-xylaxine/dexmeditomedine premedicated horses.

 

 

Department of Clinical Medicine

  • Ameliorative Potential of Tamarindusindica Leaves in Fluorotic Calves and Its Socioeconomic Impact Assessment.
  • Hepatoprotectant in Gastrointestinal Parasitic Infection In Dogs.
  • Sero-Prevalence of Peste des Petits Ruminants (PPR) Virus in Vaccinated Sheep and Goat Flocks in Coastal Odisha

  • Surgical exploration and management of intra-abdominal physical obstruction of the gastro-intestional tract in cattle through left-ventra-lateral-oblique laparotomy approach.
  • Management of foot lesions in Asian elephant (Elephas maximus) of Odisha
  • Studies on ketamine alone and in combination with medazolam for induction of general anaesthesia in buterophanol-xylaxine/dexmeditomedine premedicated horses.

 

Department of Poultry Science

  • Coloured broiler chicken variety (Live weight 1.7 kg at 6 weeks and FCR-1.9) has been developed for commercial and backyard farming
  • Hansli X CSML broiler has been evaluated for broiler traits. The birds achieved a body weight of 980 g at 7th week of age with FCR 2.55.
  • Comparative study on growth performance of three varieties (lavender, pearl, white) of guinea fowls revealed that the 20th week body weight of lavender (1412 g) was highest followed by pearl (1320 g) and white (1264 g).
