Abstract:
The present study was conducted on (n=18) Osmanabadi Goats for 90 days. Experimental animals were equally divided into three groups (T0, T1, and T2) with an average body weight of 29 kg. T0 was the control group and offered only a basal diet; the T1 group was supplemented with copper sulphate (100 mg/goat/day + Basal diet), and the T2 group was supplemented with zinc oxide (40 mg/goat/day + Basal diet). Blood samples were collected at fortnight intervals. Results indicated that MCHC values were significantly higher; Hb, RBC, and MCH values were non-significantly higher, whereas WBC and PCV values were non-significantly lower in the copper supplemented group. RBC and PCV values were non-significantly higher, whereas Hb and MCH values were significantly lower in the zinc supplemented group as compared with the control group. DLC revealed significantly higher lymphocytes, whereas neutrophils and monocytes were lacking in the zinc-supplemented group.
