Abstract:
Present investigation was carried out to assess the haemato-biochemical profile of healthy Murrah buffaloes (n=30) in different phases of lactation viz. (I) early lactation (II) mid lactation (III) dry animals (n=10 in each group) maintained at organized dairy farm under the standard nutritional and managemental practices. Haemato-biochemical alterations showed decreased glucose levels in group-III, lowest levels in group-I and highest levels in group-II. The levels of ketone bodies were significantly (p<0.05) increased in early and mid-lactation animals. Significantly (p<0.05) decreased levels of serum calcium were recorded in animals during early lactation. Animals during early and mid-lactation showed decreased levels of serum triglycerides. Higher cholesterol levels were recorded in animals during mid-lactation than early lactation but levels again decreased in late pregnant animals. Significantly (p<0.05) lower values of haemoglobin in group-II were recorded. Significantly (p<0.05) higher levels of blood urea levels were recorded in group-I and II, than the other groups. Serum creatinine levels were significantly increased in group III. Significantly (p<0.05) higher activity of serum enzymes were recorded during mid-lactation. These findings may be helpful in clinical diagnosis of metabolic disorders as well as to formulate the strategy for their prevention in dairy herds.
