Abstract

Blood samples from cows with anestrous were collected for hematological, biochemical and humoral immune status analysis. The erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) was higher and hemoglobin (Hb %) percentage was lower in anestrous group of cows than that of normal cycling control group of cows. The packed cell volume (PCV %) was lower in anestrous group of cows compared with the control group of cows. Total erythrocyte count was not significantly different between two groups of cows. The total leukocyte count was significantly higher in anestrous group of cows than that of control counterpart. The bilirubin concentration was significantly higher in anestrous group of cows compared with the control group of cows. The mean serum immunoglobulin (IgG) was lower in anestrous group of cows than that of control group of cows. It is suggested that there is no specific hematological and biochemical marker for anestrous in zebu cows.
