Abstract:

The effect of amla powder supplementation was investigated on biochemical parameters in summer stressed buffaloes. The study was carried out with 24 apparently healthy Murrah buffaloes during pre-summer and summer seasons. The results revealed that the plasma glucose, creatinine, urea and bilirubin were significantly higher in Summer Control group (Group II) as compared to Pre-Summer group (Group I), clearly confirming the adverse effect of summer stress and on supplementation with antioxidant (vitamin C in the form of amla powder) to Summer Treatment group (Group III) buffaloes, there was decrease in plasma glucose, creatinine, urea and bilirubin. Plasma Protein and plasma cholesterol were found to be significantly lower in summer control group (Group II) as compared to pre-summer group (Group I) and there was increase in Plasma Protein and plasma cholesterol in Group III (summer treatment group) as compared to Group II (summer control group) on supplementation with antioxidant (vitamin C in the form of amla powder). Biochemical parameters showed negative and significant correlation (P<0.05) with Temperature Humidity Index (THI) except cholesterol and urea. Thus, it can be concluded that amla powder supplemented to heat stress buffaloes can be useful in order to maintain biochemical parameters.
