Abstract:
Badri cattle is found in hilly districts of Uttarakhand. The present study was carried out at University Dairy Farm, Baeni, GBPUAT, Pantnagar. Blood samples were taken randomly from 30 animals above 1 year of age each during summer and winter season to study the effect of season on blood biochemical profile. It was found that the serum glucose during winter season was significantly higher as compared to summer season. The total serum proteins during winter and summer months of Badri cattle were found to be 7.43±0.09 and 7.06±0.11 mg/dl, respectively with an overall average of 7.25±0.08 mg/dl revealing that the total serum protein during winter months are higher than summer season. The average serum globulin, triglyceride and cholesterol levels during winter season were significantly higher than summer season. Serum creatinine and urea levels were significantly higher during summer season where as albumen and bilirubin concentrations were unaffected by seasonal effects. Thus it can be concluded that serum biochemical levels are affected by seasonal effects.
