Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The present investigation was carried out to determine the molybdenum (Mo) status of blood plasma and milk of lactating cows at the Livestock Experimental Station, Khizer abad, Sargodha, Pakistan. Blood and milk from the lactating cows were sampled periodically after every month during winter so as to examine the effect of sampling intervals on Mo as well as its transfer from various dietary sources to animals during the whole investigation period. The Mo contents of blood plasma and milk except some instances during the study coincided nearly with their respective critical levels. Thus, there is no need of supplementation of Mo in feeds for the cows being reared at the ranch.
