Abstract:

The present study was investigated to analyze the metabolic profile of dairy animals reared under field conditions in district Anantnag of Jammu & Kashmir. A total of 150 dairy animals were selected for the current study from different villages of the same district. Out of these, 120 animals were in different phases of lactation viz. early (n=35), mid (n=60) and late (n=30) lactation while 25 were non-lactating, dry and/or pregnant animals. Most of these animals were supplemented with irregular or zero mineral mixture. The plasma samples collected from these animals were analyzed for estimation total proteins, albumin, globulins, cholesterol, triglycerides, total calcium, inorganic phosphorus (Pi), magnesium, glucose, aspartate aminotransferase (AST), blood urea and creatinine. The major biochemical findings reported in the study were hypocalcaemia and hypophosphatemia. Except cholesterol, AST and urea no significant biochemical alteration was observed in lactating and non-lactating animals. Total cholesterol, total protein, AST and urea levels were significantly high in lactating than dry animals. Animals undergoing different phases of lactation were not different in biochemical constituents except in Inorganic phosphorus and total proteins levels. Plasma inorganic phosphorus was significantly higher in early phase of lactation and total protein in mid phase of lactation. It is concluded that dairy animals reared in and around district Anantnag are nutritionally adequate and physiologically healthy except in calcium and phosphorous which may be corrected by adequate supplementation of balanced mineral mixture.
