Body Condition Score with Relation to Various Physiological Blood Parameters for Postpartum Cyclicity of Crossbred Cows
A total of ten numbers of apparently healthy crossbred cows of 1st to 4th parity with normal calving history and free from any immediate post-parturient complications were selected to study the body condition score with relation to certain blood biochemical parameters for establishment of cyclicity during postpartum periods. Body condition score of all of the selected numbers of cows were evaluated on every fortnightly interval from the day of parturition upto eight (8) weeks on the basis of Body Condition Scoring System (5 scale) and 50 numbers of blood samples were collected from 10 numbers of cows for estimation of blood biochemical profile. The study revealed that the BCS, level of serum total protein, cholesterol, BUN, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium differed significantly (P<0.01) at different days of postpartum i.e., day 0, 15, 30, 45, 60. In conclusion, it was observed that the level of serum glucose, total protein, cholesterol, BUN, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium had a positive relation with BCS and postpartum cyclicity of the crossbred cows.
