Abstract

In order to study the serum macro and micro mineral levels in growing crossbred (Jersey × Assam local) calves, the experiment was carried out. When comparison was made among days, serum calcium, inorganic phosphorus, sodium, copper and zinc did not differ significantly. However, magnesium, potassium, iron and manganese levels were found to be significant (P<0.01).
