Abstract

Castrated and entire male buffalo calves of about 2 years of age were made to work by pulling a stone roller weighing 80 kg at a constant speed of about 3 km/h on even ‘Kachha’ ground for 3 h. Blood levels of lactic acid and pyruvic acid and the Icteric index increased, whereas blood levels of bicarbonate and proteins decreased in response to exercise. No change was observed in blood glucose or chloride levels. There was no difference in the concentrations of blood constituents of the two groups.
