Abstract

Variation in macrominerals viz., calcium, inorganic phosphorus and magnesium in serum were
studied at six and twelve months age, during winter and summer seasons in different crosses of
Patanwadi with Merino and Rambouillet. The serum calcium did not vary significantly between the
genetic groups, age and seasons. Variation in inorganic phosphorus and magnesium levels were
found to be significantly affected by genetic groups. Significantly high concentration of Pi and Mg
was recorded at six months of age. Pi and Mg levels were higher in winter season.
