Healthy female goats (156: 78 Barbari, and 78 Jamunapari goats) of different age groups, managed under semiintensive system of production in semiarid and tropical region were utilized. Blood was collected at days 0 (birth), 30, 90, 180, 270-300, 330-360 besides pre-pubertal, pubertal and post-pubertal (1 week after estrus) ages. Plasma concentration of thyroxine (T4) and 3-3′-5-triiodothyronine (T3) were significantly influenced by the breed and age of the goats. Significantly highest concentration of T4 hormone in both the breeds was recorded at birth. After birth, T4 level decreased sharply and attained significant lower values at 1 month of age in Barbari goats. In Jamunapari goats, T4 concentration was lower at 30 and 90 days of age compared to all other stages. T4 concentration started increasing after 1 month of age in Barbari goats and after 3 months of age in Jamunapari goats and remained at significantly high level up to 330-360 days of age. In Jamunapari goats, the highest level, was also seen at the age of 270-300 days. At prepubertal, pubertal and post pubertal age, T4 concentration did not fluctuate significantly. In Barbari goats, T3 concentration did not change since birth to post-pubertal age except a decrease at 90 days age. In Jamunapari goats, T3 concentration was generally stable except an increase at 180 days and pubertal age. The plasma T4 and T 3 hormones were positively correlated with estrogen. T4 had positive correlation with progesterone. T3 hormone had significantly positive correlation with mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration, serum glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase, serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase, amylase, total proteins, total globulin, cholesterol and estrogen.

Biochemical profiles were studied in 145 Barbari and 145 Jamunapari goats from birth to sexual maturity. Glucose and cholesterol level were significantly different between season and at different age. Glucose level was higher at birth till 90 days. In Barbari goats, it decreased significantly at pre-pubertal age. In Jamunapari goats, it was significantly higher at 1 month of age. In Barbari goats, cholesterol level was significantly higher at 1 month and at 330-360 days of age. In Jamunapari goats, it attained the highest value at pubertal age while it had the lowest value at 330-360 days of age. The enzyme activity of SGOT and SGPT was different between breed and between age. At birth, the SGOT and SGPT activity was significantly lower for both the breeds. The activities increased significantly within 1 month of age. In Barbaři goats, the SGOT activity remained at higher level for rest of age period except a slight drop at 9-10 months of age while SGPT activity was significantly high at 6 months and pre-pubertal age than at 3 months and 9-10 months of age. In Jamunapari goats, SGOT and SGPT activity attained significantly higher level at 1 month, 6 months, pubertal and post-pubertal age. Calcium and phosphorus level had a significant difference between breeds, between seasons, and between ages. In these goats, calcium level was significantly higher while phosphorus level was significantly lower at birth. Calcium level decreased significantly with the advancement of age in Jamunapari goats. It attained significantly higher level at 1 month of age and decreased significantly with the advancement of age except at 11-12 months of age and at puberty in Barbari goats. Phosphorus level attained the highest level of 9.79±0.46 mg/dl at 1 month of age in Barbaři goats and at 3 months of age in Jamunapari goats. In both breeds, there was decrease in phosphorus values after 6 months of age.

The present study was conducted to evaluate and compare blood zinc (Zn), copper (Cu) and cobalt (Co) status of healthy female goats (210: 105 of Barbari breed and 105 of Jamunapari breed) of different ages, managed under semiintensive system at institute farm. Blood Zn and Cu concentrations were significantly influenced by age of goats, while blood Co concentration was significantly affected by the breed of goats. In Barbari and Jamunapari goats, Zn levels further increased during one month of age. Thereafter it decreased significantly with the advancement of age up to 9-10 months of age in Barbari goats. Zn level was significantly low at pubertal age than pre-pubertal age in Barbari goats. While in Jamunapari goats, Zn level was not different in pre-pubertal, pubertal and post-pubertal age. In these goats, Cu concentration was low at birth which increased with the advancement of age and attained the highest level at 11 to 12 months of age, while, blood Cu concentration was not different at pre-pubertal, pubertal and post pubertal age. Blood Co concentration did not change with the advancement of age. Barbari goats have significantly higher blood Co concentration than Jamunapari goats.

Healthy female goats (290; 145 of Barbari breed and 145 of Jamunapari breed) of different ages, viz. 0 (birth), 30, 90, 180, 270-300, 330-360 days, pre-pubertal, pubertal and post-pubertal (1 week after oestrus), managed under semiintensive system of production were used to evaluate and compare the alkaline and acid phosphatases enzyme activity and estrogen and progesterone steroid hormones profile. The activity of alkaline phosphatase was the highest at birth in both the breeds. The alkaline phosphatase activity decreased as age of goats increased. While the activity of alkaline phosphatase increased at pre-pubertal age in Barbari breed, it did not increase in Jamunapari breed. The activity of alkaline phosphatase in Jamunapari breed at pre-pubertal age was lowest. Low level of alkaline phosphatase activity might be the cause of delayed maturity in Jamunapari goats. Acid phosphatase activity was highest at birth in Barbari goats and at 3 months of age in Jamunapari goats. The lowest values of acid phosphatase were observed at pre-pubertal age in both the breeds. The values of alkaline phosphatase activity increased at pubertal and post-pubertal ages in both the breeds. In Barbari and Jamunapari goat breeds, the estrogen level was high at birth. Thereafter, it decreased abruptly and remained low up to pre-pubertal age. At puberty, the estrogen level was maximum in both the breeds. The progesterone level was highest at birth in Barbari and Jamunapari goat breeds. Thereafter it decreased and remained low till pubertal age. It increased and obtained the highest level at post-pubertal age or one week after oestrus. Estrogen (+0.13) and progesterone (+0.30) showed significant positive correlation with alkaline phosphatase enzyme activity. A nonsignificant association of acid phosphatase was observed with estrogen (-0.04). A significant positive correlation of acid phosphatase with progesterone (+0.19) was observed.

Blood Zn and Cu concentrations were significantly influenced by the age of goats, while blood Co concentration was significantly affected by breed of goats. In Barbaři and Jamunapari goats, Zn level was 5.74 ± 0.73 and 4.26 ± 0.69 ppm, respectively, at birth which further increased to 6.03 ± 0.73 and 4.94 ± 0.69 ppm during 1 month of age. Thereafter it decreased significantly with the advancement of age up to 9-10 months of age in Barbari goats. Zn level was significantly low at pubertal age than pre-pubertal age in Barbaři goats, while in Jamunapari goats, Zn level was not different in pre-pubertal, pubertal and post-pubertal ages. In these goats, Cu concentration was low at birth which increased with the advancement of age. While blood Cu concentration was not different at prepubertal, pubertal and post-pubertal ages. Blood Co concentration did not change with the advancement of age. Barbaři goats have significantly higher blood Co concentration than Jamunapari goats.
