Abstract

Out of 154 crossbred cows, 80 cows (51.94 percent) exhibited peri-parturient disorders of which clinical and sub-clinical diseases were recorded in 40.00 and 18.75 percent, respectively while 41.25 percent of cows had both clinical and subclinical diseases. The frequently observed clinical conditions in transition cows were retention of placenta (10.39 percent), mastitis and dystocia (6.49 percent) and in sub-clinical conditions, hypocalcemia (30.51 percent) was predominant. The mean serum calcium values (mg/dL) significantly reduced in cows with clinical/sub-clinical diseases during transition period. The serum BHBA values in affected cows were increased ranging from 0.11 m mol/L to 7.60 m mol/L.
