Present study was conducted on seventy two cattle of three groups’ viz., Hardhenu strain of cross bred cattle, Sahiwal and Hariana breeds comprising twenty four animals of each group/breed. The biochemical assessment was based on assay of sodium, potassium, chloride, blood urea nitrogen (BUN), creatinine, glucose, calcium, total protein, albumin, alkaline phosphatase (ALP), alanine amino transferase (ALT), aspartate amino transferase (AST), bilirubin (total and direct) and triglycerides parameters. Triglycerides, ALP, creatinine and potassium ion concentration were found to be higher in Hariana while direct bilirubin, ALT and sodium ion concentration were comparatively higher in Hardhenu. However, Albumin, calcium and glucose were observed to be at higher concentration in Sahiwal.
