CAREER OBJECTIVE

    I have a dream to be a potential researcher. I think I started my journey and I am eagerly waiting for my next step. To achieve my dream, I agree to work more than hard. My career path aims at working within the dairy organization because I have developed enormous interest over the years in this field and it well compliments my current occupation as a university teacher. The opportunity to learn new skills and work with advanced technologies is particularly attractive to me.

PROJECTS

  1. Uses of Mushroom as an antioxidant, anticoccidial and growth Promoter in broiler production and development of least-cost balanced ration with locally available feed ingredients for dairy animal using Feed Master Android software

    Funded by: Ministry of Science and Technolohy, Government of the People's Republic of Bangladesh

    Position: Co-project Investigator

    Description: Experiment II: Profitable animal production depends on so many factors and feeding is most important among them as feeding cost responsible for 60% cost of animal production. Feeding of animal economically requires proper feed formulation according to animal requirement considering their age, sex and stage of production. In a conventional animal production system, farmers are not conscious enough about their animal requirement, available feed sources and their nutritive values as information regarding these issues are scattered. So, the approach has been taken to give a complete package to the farmers as well as a stakeholder to feed their animals in the proper way. Feed master is an android application that can easily be installed on an android device which can formulate ration instantly according to thumb rule. Formulation of ration and feeding to an animal is done on the basis of DMI of animal considering their body weight. This experiment helps the village farmer to increase the milk production. This is the first time field trial in our dairy farm.
