Abstract

This study was carried out in a total of 100 cattle aged between 6 to 18 months housed in modern and traditional husbandry farms. Clinical, ruminal fluid, hematological, blood biochemical and blood gases examinations were determined on days the 1st, 3rd and 7th days of the study. At the end of the study, it was shown that the respiration and heart frequencies, WBC, RBC, PCO2, HCO3, AST, GGT, glucose and cortisol levels in the animals breeding in the traditional farm were found to be higher than those of the animals breeding in the modern husbandries, whereas seratonin, total protein and albumin levels were low.
