assessment OF SOME OF THE SERUM BIOCHEMICAL PROFILE and ovarian Status OF CYCLIC AND NON-CYCLIC ANESTROUS BUFFALOES OF SHIVNAGAR VDC AND IAAS LIVESTOCK FARM OF CHITWAN, NEPAL

Keywords: BCS, Buffalo, Ovarian Cyclicity, Serum calcium.

Ovarian acyclicity is one of the causes of reproductive failure in buffaloes in Nepal. Evaluation of body condition score (BCS), ovarian status and serum biochemical analysis was conducted in Murrah cross buffaloes (n=13) of Shivnagar village development committee (VDC) and Institute of Agriculture and Animal Science (IAAS) Livestock Farm, which were grouped as cyclic (n=5) and non-cyclic (n=8) on the basis of presence or absence of functional structures such as the corpus luteum (CL) and the follicles (≥7.0mm) in the paired ovaries and classified them as buffaloes having functional ovaries (FO) or non-functional ovaries (NFO), respectively. The examination of the ovaries of those buffaloes was performed per-rectally and by using ultrasound scanner. Furthermore, serum biochemical analysis was conducted for calcium (Ca), inorganic phosphorus (P), total protein (TP), urea and cholesterol. The BCS in cyclic buffaloes was significantly higher (p<0.01) than in non-cyclic buffaloes. The average size of FO was significantly (p<0.01) greater than the NFO and the majority of animals with better BCS possessed FO. Among biochemical parameters, only serum Ca tended to be (but not significantly) higher in cyclic buffaloes as compared to non-cyclic buffaloes. Therefore, it can be suggested that BCS may be related to the ovarian cyclicity in buffaloes.
