Abstract:

Metabolic and physiological changes occurring during the peri-parturient period causes extensive metabolic stress in cows, concurrent with immunosuppression during this period. In the current study, we investigated, the possible relationship between vitamin E, selenium, high energy diet supplementation and its effects on serum metabolites. The present study was conducted on a total of 30 animals, 15 were in each group (Control and Treatment). The treatment group was supplemented with 80 IU Vitamin E /kg Dry matter intake (DMI) and 0.3 mg Selenium/kg DMI, from 4 weeks before calving to 8 weeks after calving, including the day of parturition. We observed significantly (p<0.05) higher cholesterol concentrations in the treatment group rather than the control group. The level of urea remained high in the control group than treatment; however, no changes in the Total protein, albumin and ALT. The alterations in the serum metabolite’s concentrations are due to the positive effects of vitamin e and selenium, which have antioxidant roles.
