Abstract:

The comparative haemato˗biochemical and physiological response to different bedding materials in Barbari kids was evaluated. Thirty post˗weaned Barbari kids of about three months age were selected from the institutional flock, which were divided into three groups viz. group I, II and III with ten kids in each group and were kept on plastic slats, soil and rubber mats, respectively. Blood samples were taken at monthly interval during the trial. There was no significant effect of flooring type on the physiological parameters. The mean values of hemoglobin (g/dl) and hematocrit (%) were 9.00, 8.93, 8.96 and 22.04, 21.68, and 21.95, in group I, II and III, respectively. The values of RBC, WBC, lymphocytes, monocytes and granulocytes counts were 15.36, 14.73, 14.97 (m/mm3) and 14.43, 12.66, 13.71 (m/mm3) and 41.56, 46.03, 46.37 (%) and 4.82, 5.23, 5.28 (%) and 53.61, 48.74 and 48.32 (%), in group I, II and III respectively. The mean total protein, albumin and globulin values were 6.85, 6.45, 6.34 (g/dl) and 2.59, 2.46 and 2.42 (g/dl) and 4.25, 3.98 and 3.91 (g/dl) in group I, II and III, respectively. The mean values of plasma glucose, triglycerides and cholesterol were 63.63, 66.32, 70.14 (mg/dl) and 90.29, 96.90, 90.51 (mg/dl) and 82.49, 82.94 and 86.51(mg/dl) in group I, II and III, respectively. The concentration of glucose was comparable (P>0.05) among group I and II and also among group II and III, whereas significantly different (P<0.05) among group I and III. The mean values of total protein in group I was significantly higher (P<0.05) than group II and III. The mean values of triglycerides were significantly higher (P<0.05) in group II as compared to group I and III.
