Abstract:

The present study was carried out to investigate the effect of different levels of garlic supplementation on the blood biochemical profile of Murrah buffalo calves. In a CRD model, 18 murrah buffalo calves in the age group of 4-5 months were randomly divided into three groups (T0, T1 and T2) with six calves in each group. The T0 group served as the control whereas the T1 and T2 groups were supplemented with garlic powder at the dose rate of 250 and 300 mg per kg body weight, respectively for a period of 90 days. The results of the study revealed a significant (P<0.01) increase in the total protein, albumin, globulin and HDL-cholesterol levels and a significant (P<0.01) decrease in the blood glucose level, serum cholesterol level and SGOT levels in the garlic supplemented calves compared with the control group calves. In addition to this, no significant difference was observed between the garlic supplemented group calves and control group calves with respect to serum calcium, serum phosphorus and blood urinary nitrogen (BUN) values. Thus, by this study we can conclude that dietary supplementation of garlic improved the total protein, serum albumin, serum globulin and HDL-cholesterol values and decreased the serum glucose, serum cholesterol and SGOT values in the murrah buffalo calves.
