Abstract


Kid diseases were investigated on 240 sick kids of small holder farm during two years period from June 2002 to May 2004 of which 76 (31.67%) kids died during research period. Higher mortality rate was recorded in male (16.28%) than female (13.00%) under farm condition, though the difference was not statistically significant. Both the morbidity (42.17%) and mortality (18.29%) rates in kids aged between 0 to 30 days old were found to be significantly (P<0.01) higher in comparison to age between 31 to 90 days (morbidity 31.81% and mortality 13.64%) and aged between 91 to 180 days (morbidity 26.02% and mortality 10.19%). It may be concluded from this result that in avenging condition a farmer should give special attention to the kid from birth to 3 month of age. Although the morbidity range was found to be significantly (p<0.01) higher during rainy (72.37%) in comparison to winter (52.40%) and summer (41.50%) seasons but the mortality rate was found higher during summer (18.03%), followed by winter (13.70%) and lowest during rainy (10.12%) season. It was also observed that 58.25% kids maintained under rural conditions are deprived from first colostrum due to ignorance, which necessitates the veterinary extension services to the rural small holder traditional goat farmer. 14 types of kid diseases were diagnosed at Bangladesh Livestock Research Institute Goat Farm and ten types at the small holder farms and their epidemiological different pattern of occurrence were analyzed and discussed.
