  The present study was conducted to monitor the presence of antibiotic residues in poultry meat. Swab Test on Animal Food (STAF) employing Bacillus subtilis as test organism on nutrient agar with 0.4% dextrose at pH 7, was used. A spore suspension of 2x107 spores mL-1 was used in 100 mL of nutrient agar to make STAF plates. A total of 100 tissue samples (33 liver, 33 kidney and 34 muscles) were collected from local market of Rawalpindi and Islamabad. Thirteen (39.4%) liver, 9 (27.3%) kidney and 7 (20.6%) muscle samples were detected positive for antibiotic residues. Antibiotic sensitivity and Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) of Oxytetracycline, Gentamicin, Neomycin, Enrofloxacin, Chloramphenicol, Amoxicillin, Benzyl Penicillin, Streptomycin and Tylosin against Bacillus subtilis was determined to be 0.6100, 0.0549, 0.1525, 0.1525, 0.0023, 0.0143, 0.0095, 0.0380 and 0.0023 μg, respectively. It is concluded from the study that STAF test can be used for the preliminary detection of antimicrobial residues in poultry tissues.

  Mastitis continues to be a major economic issue for dairy producers all over the world. Staphylococcus aureus is frequently isolated from bubaline mastitis and brings about glandular tissues changes obliterating the milk producing cells. Elimination of this organism from dairy herds requires treatment of infected mammary glands with antimicrobial agents and aggressive culling of refractory animals. The present study was designed to evaluate the disease characteristics of Staphylococcus aureus mastitis in buffaloes and antibiotic susceptibility profiles of isolates. Visual inspection and palpation indicated as; asymmetry between hind quarters (n = 3), symmetry between hind quarters (n = 3), asymmetry between front quarters (n = 1), symmetry between front quarters (n = 5), Clinical symptoms (n = 2), udder and teat’s wounds (n = 2), scar tissue (n = 1), warts (teat) (n = 1) and all others parameters were normal. A total of 100 milk samples (20 clinical and 80 sub-clinical) from mastitic quarters of buffaloes were collected. The antibiotic susceptibility profiles of recovered isolates Staphylococcus aureus were as; co-trimaxazole (100%), oxytetracycline (95.65%), amoxicillin (86.95%), gentamycin (86.95%), ampicillin (82.60%), ciprofloxacin (82.60%), chloramphenicol (82.60%), enrofloxacin (69.56%) and novabiocin (60.86%).

  The various levels of ZnS04 included in the experiment were 0, 5, 10, 15 and 20 kg ha–1 applied at the time of pudding. The results showed that T3 (15 kg ZnSO4 ha–1) treatment produced maximum paddy yield (3.80 t ha–1) than all other treatments. This higher yield was attributed to increase number of fertile tillers m–2 and greater harvest index in this treatment as compared to other treatments. It was concluded that application of ZnS04 at 15 kg ha–1 at the time of puddling is the most economical to obtain higher yield under Faisalabad conditions.
