Abstract:
To examine the impact of heat stress on non-descript goat of arid tract, present investigation was carried out. To execute the objectives, blood samples were collected from non-descript male (N=60) and female (N=60) goats (Post pubertal) of 5-11 months of age from private slaughter houses of arid tract. The samples were collected during moderate environmental temperature period (October to November) and extreme hot environmental temperature period (May to June), from age group 5-7 months (N=20); 7-9months (N=20); and 9-11 months (N=20) of each sex. The magnitude of glucose and malondialdehye concentration in plasma assessed during extreme hot environmental temperature period were compared to those analyzed during moderate environmental temperature period. Upshot of present study reflected the effect of hot ambient temperature on plasma glucose and malondialdehyde in the goats of all age groups and sexes. The mean value of plasma glucose and malondialdehyde obtained during moderate environmental temperature period was considered as control value and was found to decreased and increased for glucose and malondialdehyde respectively, under bang of heat stress irrespective of age and sex. Significant (p≤0.05) changes in mean values of plasma glucose and malondialdehyde were observed due to sex and age in both moderate and extreme hot ETPs. In both the ETPs, mean value of plasma glucose and malondialdehyde were found to be significantly (p≤0.05) higher in male goats as compared to female goats. Mean values assessed for glucose during both the ETPs were found to be highest in goats of 5-7 months age group and lowest in 9-11 months of age group, however mean value assessed for malondialdehyde found to be highest in 9-11 months age group and lowest in 5-7 month age group. All the changes were significant (p≤0.05). Present investigation was done to know precautionary measure to be taken for the survival of goat of arid tract without compromising production.
