Abstract

Plasma profile of calcium, inorganic phosphorus, magnesium, copper, managanese, zinc, cobalt, total proteins, albumin, globulins, A: G ratio, total lipids, cholesterol, blood glucose, plasma urea nitrogen (PUN), uric acid, creatinine and plasma bilirubin was studied in 15 months old non-pregnant crossbred heifers (Holstein Friesian × Sahiwal) at 270 and 1700 m altitudes from mean sea level. Significantly higher plasma copper, iron, zinc (P<0.01) and A: G ratio (P0.05) were recorded in heifers maintained at 270m altitude in comparison to those at 1700m altitude, whereas higher globulins, uric acid, creatinine (P0.01) and PUN (P0.05) were recorded in heifers maintained at 1700 m altitude.
