Abstract:
The present study was undertaken at sheep unit of Livestock Farm Complex (LFC), College of Veterinary Science, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad-30. 24 Nellore brown ram lambs with average body weight of 15.32±0.39 kg and aged 3-6 months were procured from Livestock Research Station, Mamnoor. These lambs were then allotted randomly to 3 treatment groups (eight lambs in each group) i.e., on mud floor (control, T1), on concrete floor (T2) and on the elevated plastic slatted floor (T3) in completely randomized design under intensive system. Floor type did not have significant effect on rectal temperature, pulse rate and respiration rate, RBC, WBC, Hb, PCV, MCV, MCH, MCHC, total protein, albumin, globulin, glucose and Cortisol among three treatment groups. The values of all leucocyte indices were statistically non-significant among the three treatment groups except for monocytes at the end of the experiment where higher monocytes were recorded in T3.
