The present study was carried out to determine the role of micro minerals in increasing pregnancy rates in apparently barren and reproductively normal mares. For this study, normal healthy mares and apparently barren (infertile) mares were selected randomly and were subjected to micro-mineral supplemented ration containing copper, zinc, iron and manganese for 20 days during their vernal period of breeding cycle. It was found that the pregnancy rate in micro mineral supplemented group was significantly higher (P<0.05) than in non supplemented group.
