Abstract

Blood glucose and serum insulin were determined in forty four triple cross bred (½ Kankrej X ¼  Jersey X ¼ Holstein Friesian) pregnant heifers (20) and cows (24) on days 90,150, 210 and 275 of gestation. Blood glucose (mg/dl) levels decreased significantly (Pcose as gestation advances may be due to utilization of glucose for the development and growth of the fetus. Positive correlation existed between glucose and insulin levels at different stages of gestation.

Keywords
