Abstract:

This study was conducted to evaluate the impact of age (from birth to three months) on serum metabolites and minerals in crossbred calves. The research was carried out on six apparently healthy crossbred calves (aged 0-3 months) of similar physiological status. Blood samples were collected from the experimental animals on 0, 3, 7, 10, 15, 30, 45, 60, 75 and up to 90 days age of calves. Five of whole blood from each animal was collected in clot activator vaccuttainer. Serum was separated and analyzed for serum metabolites and minerals. Significantly (P < 0.05) highest concentration of serum glucose and uric acid were observed on the day of birth, while the lowest concentration was observed on 90th day. Significantly (P < 0.05) lowest concentration of serum BUN, total protein, and cholesterol was observed on the day of birth whereas, the highest concentration of BUN, total protein and cholesterol was observed on 90th day after birth. Serum creatinine concentration was highest on 3rd day and decreased abruptly on 7th day. The overall level of creatinine was fluctuating from birth to 90th day of life. Among minerals, significantly (P < 0.05) highest concentration of calcium and magnesium were observed on the day of birth, while the lowest concentration was observed on 90th day of life. Serum concentration of inorganic phosphorus was significantly (P < 0.05) lowest on the day of birth, while the highest concentration was observed on 90th day. It could be concluded that the age is having significant effect over all metabolites and minerals.
