Abstract:
The effect of slaughter stress on different blood parameters were studied in Nellore breed of sheep and Beetal breed of goats. A total of 108 sheep and goats almost of same age and weight were randomly selected. Two groups were divided and collection of blood samples was carried out – i.e., pre slaughter period and during exsanguinations. The blood parameters were calculated in both the species within one hour of collection. The wide variation was observed in between the groups for each blood parameter studied. It was observed that slaughter stress significantly affects the blood parameters in the sheep and goats with respect to white blood cells (WBC), red blood cells (RBC), haemoglobin concentration (HGB), mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH), and RBC distribution width (RDW) but no significant difference was noted in mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC) between samples.
