Abstract:
Yak (Bos grunniens) belongs to bovine species with economic importance found in the higher altitudes of snow laid Himalayan region of India. The yak in contrast to other bovine species is a multipurpose animal as it is a source of milk, meat, fiber, dung and the source of transportation of goods to highlanders. The present study was conducted to estimate the levels of calcium and phosphorus in both the genders of yak during summer and winter to possibly establish the base line data with reference to calcium and phosphorus. A total of 680 samples were evaluated comprising 340 samples in each summer and winter seasons consisting equal number of male and female yak. The calcium levels in females were 8.69±0.74 in summer while it was 8.78±0.27 in winter. The phosphorus levels were 2.40±0.29 in summer while it was 2.10±0.20 in winter. In males the calcium levels were 8.03±0.31 in summer and 8.93±1.43 in winter. The phosphorus levels were 3.34±0.62 and 2.58±0.26 in summer and winter respectively.
