Abstract:
The objective of the present study was to assess the prevalence of copper deficiency in Murrah buffaloes from four districts of Haryana state viz. Hisar, Fatehabad, Rohtak and Sonipat. The study was undertaken in 108 heifer and adult buffaloes kept under village conditions and organized dairy farms. Analysis of serum samples of these animals revealed overall copper deficiency in buffaloes was 49.07 per cent, out of which 52.38 per cent heifers and 44.44 per cent were adults. The mean serum copper concentration of buffaloes kept under village conditions and organized dairy farms was found 0.625 ± 0.043 ppm and 0.675 ± 0.039 ppm, respectively. Similarly, low levels of ceruloplasmin was observed in animals reared under village conditions (13.919 ± 0.732 mg%) than the animals kept at organized dairy farms (16.741 ± 1.251 mg%). Serum ceruloplasmin level was observed lower in pregnant buffaloes (13.555 ± 0.784 mg%) than the non-pregnant animals (15.325 ± 1.071 mg%).
