Abstract:

The whole study was conducted on six adult pregnant, apparently healthy, Crossbred cows during Peripartum period i.e. from 45 days before parturition to 45 days after parturition. Nine ml of whole blood from each experimental animal was collected from jugular vein in heparinized vaccutainer. Plasma from the blood samples was separated and analyzed for mineral parameters. Concentration of calcium and zinc were observed to be significantly (P<0.05) lower on day 3 after parturition. Whereas, the concentration of magnesium and inorganic phosphorous were not differed significantly between pre-partum and post-partum period. Also the concentration of copper and Iron were observed to be significantly (P<0.05) lower on the day of parturition than any other days of the peri-partum period.
