The effects of transportation on oxidative stress biomarkers, rectal (RT) and skin temperature (ST) in male Aardi goats (Capra aegagrus hircus) were investigated. Fifteen animals of 9-12 months age, and 33.6-42.9 kg body weight were used in this study. Goats were transported for 240 km for 3 hrs, and 480 km for 6 hours. Blood samples were collected at 0 (pre-transportation); and at 30, 60, 120, and 240 minutes, and 24 hrs post transportation. Both distances resulted in a significant (P clusion, transportation decreased the antioxidant status in Aardi goat, and supplemental antioxidant prior transportation may negate these effects.
