Abstract

The present research work was undertaken to study seasonal variation in haematological parameters of Surti goats during summer and winter season under intensive production system on eight adults clinically healthy female Surti goats. The meteorological variables like temperature and relative humidity were recorded on daily basis at 7.30 a.m. and 2.30 p.m. during experimental period as well as meteorological data for last 10 years from year 2004 to 2014 collected from the observatory for estimation of THI. Blood samples were collected from the Surti goats at a weekly basis for the estimation of haematological study throughout the experimental period. Haematological attributes like Red Blood Cells (x 106/µl) , White Blood Cells (x 103/µl), Mean Corpuscular Volume (fl),Mean Corpuscular Haemoglobin (pg), Mean Corpuscular Haemoglobin Concentration (g/dl) showed significantly (P<0.05) higher level during summer season than in winter  season with significantly (P < 0.01) positive correlation with the THI.
