45 pregnant Ganjam does were randomly distributed into three treatment groups (T1, T2, T3), 15 in each for evaluating the effect of concentrate supplementation 2 months before expected date of kidding on their haematobiochemical profiles. All the does were maintained on browsing besides additional concentrate supplementation @ 200 g /day and @ 300 g/day in T2 and T3 respectively. Blood samples were collected at the beginning and 60th day of experiment for analysis of hemoglobin, serum glucose, urea, total protein, albumin, globulin and A/G. Significant differences (Pevel in does after compensating the energy needs of growing foetus.
