Abstract:

Twelve goats irrespective of their sex, with average age of 3 years were grouped in 2 groups comprising 6 goats in each group with an average body weight of 21.79 kg. The goats under negative control group (Group-I) were kept in complete environmental ambience without transportation stress. Group II as a positive control, subjected to normal environment and induced transportation stress for 12 hrs over a distance of 350 Km on 10th day of experiment. There was an average shrinkage of body weight of 5.76 per cent in transported goats over their pre-transport weight. Haematological estimations revealed significant (P < 0.01) increase in haematocrit values as there was leukocytosis with neutrophilia in transported goats
