Abstract:

This study evaluated effects of organic trace mineral supplementation on hormonal and metabolic profile of primiparous buffaloes. Fourteen animals were randomly divided into two groups control (n=7) and treatment (n=7; Copper@225mg, Zinc@1.0gm per animal per day). Treatment group was supplemented with organic copper at the rate of 225mg and Zinc at rate1.0gm per animal per day respectively, in addition to normal feeding, 60 days before the expected date of calving till the date of artificial insemination. A significant (p<0.05) decrease in the serumnon-esterified fatty acid (NEFA) levels (µmol/l) was observed in supplemented (388.88 ± 3.73 to 334.40 ± 2.86 µmol/l) than control group (405.27 ± 2.63 to 352.92 ± 5.45 µmol/l) buffaloes. There was significant difference (p<0.05) in total protein (g/dl) values between treatment (6.90 ± 0.06 to 7.35 ± 0.05 g/dl) and control group (6.22 ± 0.20 to 6.35 ± 0.22 g/dl). Total protein (g/dl) increased after parturition in treatment group, while in control group the concentration of total protein did not change significantly after parturition. No significant difference was observed in progesterone (0.33 ± 0.01 to 1.83 ± 0.06ng/ml vs. 0.26 ± 0.01 to 1.29 ± 0.08 ng/ml) and estradiol (22.67 ± 0.42 to 140.82 ± 0.51pg/ml vs. 21.04 ± 0.16 to 145.23 ± 0.39 pg/ml) concentration in supplemented and control group, respectively. We concluded that supplementation of organic trace mineral significantly improved the total protein and non-esterified fatty acid levels in blood thus helps in proper mobilisation and utilisation of body reserves but it did not affect the blood hormonal profile significantly.
